América

NEW RELEASE
América

September 13–22
Diego, a young circus artist, returns home to Colima, Mexico and reunites with his brothers after their grandmother, América, falls from her bed. Diego is a dreamer who sees poetry and purpose in this tragedy. His dream of familial cohesion fades into reality as the brothers clash over money, communication, and the challenge of caring for América. In their feature-length documentary debut, filmmakers Erick Stoll and Chase Whiteside capture three years in the life of a fractured, yet loving family with great sensitivity and alertness. The film offers a privileged vantage on interactions rarely shown but widely experienced by anyone who has cared for or been cared for by loved ones. Affection emanates from the screen.
