Pahokee

dir. Patrick Bresnan & Ivete Lucas, 2019
NR, 110 min, USA, in English

This portrait of Pahokee, a rural village in the Florida Everglades, follows four students
beginning their senior year. We see the now-nostalgic pre-pandemic daily life in this small city through the observational approach of directors Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan. Like families all over the US, residents of Pahokee face difficult financial situations and an uncertain future, yet they all want their children to graduate and prosper. Explore the social and community rituals in this small town as the students reckon with questions of identity and self-worth.
