Description

Na'Kerria, Jocabed, Junior, and BJ are four high school students embarking on their senior year in Pahokee, a small agricultural town on the shores of Lake Okeechobee in Florida. The teens navigate the sometimes exciting, sometimes heartbreaking rites of passage of their final year while making profound decisions about their futures. As they do, the pressure of Pahokee's economic hardships weighs heavily on their shoulders: the local job supply is dwindling, and the community's hopes for opportunity and success rest entirely on the next generation.

In PAHOKEE, directors Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas expand on their award-winning short film SKIP DAY to bring us deeper into the hearts and minds of youth on the cusp of the unknown.
