'Rich Hill'

When: Thu., Dec. 18, 7 p.m. 2014

Despite what its name suggests, Rich Hill, Mo., is marred by financial hardship. A former coal town 75 miles south of Kansas City, its population hovers around 1,000, amid closed storefronts and barren landscapes. Enter Andrew, Appachey and Harley, teenage boys who call this dot on the map home. The subjects of Tracy Droz Tragos and Andrew Droz Palermo’s documentary Rich Hill, their struggles paint a compelling portrait that Rolling Stone calls “a marvel of hard-won heartbreak.” Winner of the grand jury prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, this unflinching account examines the far-reaching effects of multigenerational poverty.

Price: $5-8; free for VTIFF members.
