Southern Documentary Fund is pleased to present OUTTA THE MUCK, directed and produced by Bhawin Suchak and Ira Mckinley.
Family, football and history come to life in an intimate portrait of the Dean family, longtime residents of the historic town of Pahokee, Florida. We take a journey back home, with filmmaker Ira McKinley, to the land of sugarcane, as he reconnects with his niece Bridget and nephew Alvin and explores their shared family history that spans seven generations. Told through stories that transcend space and time, Outta The Muck presents a community, and a family, that resists despair with love, remaining fiercely self-determined, while forging its own unique narrative of Black achievement.
Doors will open at 6:30pm, film will start at 7:00pm. There will be a post film discussion with Bhawin Suchak (co-director), Ira Mckinley (co-director), and Philip J. Merrill (African American Heritage Historian & Consultant) immediately following the screening.
