The Very Worst Thing updated, coming back to the MAC

The Very Worst Thing is coming back to the Mountain Arts Center, and creator Michael Crisp said this year’s showing will feature new content not previously seen when the film debuted.

The film, a documentary about the 1958 Floyd County school bus disaster that killed 27 people and stands as the nation’s worst school bus crash, opened at the MAC in 2010 to popular acclaim, and has continued to draw large crowds at subsequent showings ever since. This time, Crisp said the film contains something new for everyone, even those who have seen it before.

Included in the new footage are interviews with two survivors, Darwin Derossett and David Wright, who were on the bus when it plunged into the Big Sandy River, but were able to swim ashore. The updated film also includes new footage and photographs, as well as extended interviews with subjects of the original.
