Match an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker with her cousin, an established cinematographer on You’re Next (’11) and Sundance preemed titles of V/H/S, short film Black Metal (’12) and last year’s A Teacher (’13), and we might be looking at a viscerally thoughtful look into how America is suffering….via the vantage point of a rural town’s youngest inhabitants. In the works since 2011, Tracy Droz Tragos and Andrew Droz Palermo’s Rich Hill has received a lot of support namely from the Sundance Institute (a recent July Docu Edit and Story Lab) and the go to crowdfunding site Kickstarter. We’re ready for this type of Missouri.
Gist: In a rural American town, three kids face heartbreaking choices, find comfort in the most fragile of family bonds, and dream of possibility.
