Galway Film Fleadh 2020: Pahokee
Pahokee is a rural town 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 in 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.
