Hard.Land – Jesse’s Bad Dream, Beckley
Jesse Boggoss received the Medal of Honor and 15 other medals for his service in the Vietnam War. He killed more people than he can count. Jesse now lives by himself far up in the mountains of West Virginia in a house full of weapons and in a body full of bad memories.
Hard.Land is a multimedia project – a journey through Blue Collar America to meet the people struggling to keep the American Dream alive: The middle class, the unemployed, the new poor, the workers on low or minimum wage – and those who have lost benefits and had their salaries slashed.
From Chicago to Detroit, Youngstown, Beckley, Williamsport and finally New York, reporter Roy Freddy Andersen and photographer Espen Rasmussen tell stories of people who are facing difficult times, and those who still have work, but often on minimum wages.
