Directed by Sydney Freeland
Sydney Freeland is an acclaimed emerging talent, has written and directed an incredible film – Drunktown’s Finest. Set in a small native American town, Freeland carefully and cinematically weaves viewers in and out of the lives of three young people who are all struggling with the confinement of small town life in a Native American territory. Three Native American teenagers; a rebellious father-to-be, a devout Christian girl, and a promiscuous transsexual, strive to escape the hardships of life on an Indian reservation.
The film has broad appeal and is very relatable to anyone who has ever undergone the struggle of trying to break free from the roots of a small town in order to find a better life for their family or find out who they really are.
