Winner: an MFF19 Junior Jury Special Jury Prize for Cinematography went to Patrick Bresnan

In their feature debut, award-winning documentarians Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan intimately share the lives and aspirations of four high-school seniors of color as they anxiously prepare for life outside Pahokee High School. In a rural, tight-knit town in Southern Florida, their high school is like none other, with an undefeated football team uniting the community and a prom that brims with gowns, tuxedos, and vintage cars. Lucas and Bresnan employ a graceful, poetic approach to their material that grants the many emotional moments in the film great authenticity.

Q&A with directors Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas to follow.
