OUT OF OMAHA is an intimate portrait of twin brothers Darcell and Darrell Trotter, two young black men coming of age in the racially and economically divided Midwestern town of Omaha, NE. Director Clay Tweel met the Trotters when they were 17 and filmed them over a period of 8 years. Their journey to adulthood illustrates how hope survives in the face of poverty, violence, and sacrifice. OUT OF OMAHA connects us deeply to its heroes and their struggle—and, through that connection, compels us to address the endemic racism that plagues America today.

Tweel is a frequent flyer on IFFBoston's documentary slate; repeat audience members may recall GLEASON (2016), FINDERS KEEPERS (2015), and PRINT THE LEGEND (2014). Musician J. Cole is an executive producer of OUT OF OMAHA.
