About the film

In an isolated town in rural Florida, four teens experience the joys and heartbreaks of their last year in high school.

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.

PAHOKEE is the powerful portrait of a forgotten America, absent from the current political discourse.

Pahokee is also a worthwhile reminder for those who haven't faced similar challenges that things rarely come easy for those from modest circumstances.
