Rich Hill, Missouri could be any of the countless small towns that blanket America’s heartland, but to teenagers Andrew, Harley and Appachey, it’s home. ??They are like millions of other boys coming of age the world over. But when coupled with difficult circumstances—isolation, instability, and parental unemployment—adolescence can be a daily struggle just to survive. With no road map and all evidence to the contrary, they cling to the hope that even they can live the American dream. ??Winner of the 2014 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Rich Hill is an irresistibly moving and inspirational portrait of the challenges, hopes and dreams of rural America’s youth.
The Boston premiere will take place at the Brattle Theater on Friday, August 15th at 7:30pm. It will also be shown through the weekend. ??
A panel discussion will be held after the film featuring the Greater Boston Network members; Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, Hyde Square Task Force, Julie’s Family Learning Program, My Life My Choice, On The Rise, REACH Beyond Domestic Violence, Western Mass Recovery Learning Community and Youth On Fire??.
