Lost in Gainesville

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Hector was eight when his father brought him to Gainesville, in the heart of the American south. Olga was 12 when her father swam the Rio Grande with her on his back. Thomas was 16 when his mother put him on a bus alone, with a bag of tacos for the 2,000-mile journey. Lost in Gainesville retraces their journey, as they tell their stories of growing up among lost hopes and dreams, in a town where work has dried up, where fascists march against them and where rich whites live out lives of faded glory.
