“Lively and rousing as a generational snapshot, buoyed by the lovable, resilient kids at its heart.”
– Guy Lodge, Variety

Filmmakers 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. Through a precise observational approach, the film captures the daily life of this city restoring a rich palette of nuances. From sporting events to beauty contests at school, the filmmakers explore social and community rituals, and how gender and identity are portrayed as new stories are created. A complex, multi-faceted work that recalls both the raw social realism of the new American cinema and the neorealist style, Pahokee is the powerful portrait of a forgotten America, absent from the current political discourse. In English. Not Rated. Directors: Ivete Lucas, Patrick Bresnan (US 2019) 112 min
