Ivete Lucas, Patrick Bresnan — USA — 2019 — 112'
Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan paint a detailed and astonishing portrait of Pahokee, a rural village in the Everglades, Florida. Very close-knit, its inhabitants fight to face fragile financial situations and an uncertain future. From sporting events to beauty contests at school, filmmakers explore social and community rituals, and how gender and identity are portrayed as new stories are created. Pahokee is the powerful portrait of a forgotten America, absent from the current political discourse.
