PAHOKEE

In their last year of high school, students Na’Kerria, Jocabed, Junior, and BJ are excited for what the future will bring. They live in Pahokee, a small rural town on the shores of Lake Okeechobee in the Florida Everglades, and their whole community has their sights and hopes set on them: the next generation they are so proud of, ready to step up and help Pahokee prosper. As they navigate this sweet time between childhood and adulthood in which they get to take part in new freedoms and rituals, heartbreak, adversity, pressure, laughter, and love will be the teens’ constant companions — a roller coaster of feelings that will influence the future they are about to step into in a myriad of ways. Filmmaking duo Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan imbue the screen with the magnificent magic of teenage existence, a time of simultaneous fear and happiness that they have so sensibly and expertly captured in their award-winning short films.
