Part coming-of-age story and part sports documentary, this stunning, beautifully shot film follows the lives of three students -- Erik, a soccer player, Shyanne, one of the school’s best wrestlers, and Francisco, a hard-throwing pitcher and third baseman -- who cross the border every day from their homes in Juarez, Mexico to attend high school in El Paso, Texas, where they look to sports as a path toward success.
The Eleventh Annual Flyway Film Festival will take place October 19-21, 2018 in Pepin, Stockholm, and Alma, Wisconsin. Flyway Film Festival's mission is to bring the best in independent film to the Lake Pepin area of Wisconsin and Minnesota for the purposes of cultural enrichment, community-building, arts education, and to inspire the next generation of filmmakers. The festival venues are on the shores of Lake Pepin, a part of the Mississippi that widens to a 40-square-mile “lake” sixty miles downstream from the Twin Cities. The area is known for its scenic river bluffs as well as for its vibrant arts scene, gourmet dining, and sailing. The Great River Road, which runs along the Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin, was named the “Prettiest Drive in America” by the Huffington Post.
