Description

Director Matt Ogens Attending

Following the search for the American dream on the extreme edge of the nation, Home + Away explores the lives of student athletes at El Paso’s Bowie High School, with dreams inspired by family, fueled by sports, and deeply complicated by the US/Mexican border – the fault-line between two worlds.

At Bowie High School, kids risk travel every day across the border from the drug war zone of Juarez, Mexico to their high school in El Paso that had been plagued by corruption and, like their students, is once more striving for greatness. Sports plays an integral role in the film and in their lives, as a way of building community and belonging, learning to overcome adversity, and build self-respect and confidence. Through their experiences, we begin to understand the precarious world of the borderland, and through sports we see their hopes, their heartbreaks and their triumphs.

Sinopsis española

Al seguir la búsqueda del sueño americano en el extremo de la nación, Home + Away explora las vidas de estudiantes atletas en la secundaria Bowie, ubicada en El Paso. Sueños inspirados por sus familias, alimentados por los deportes y profundamente complicados por la frontera entre México y los Estados Unidos, todos sufren alrededor del quiebre entre dos mundos. En la Secundaria Bowie los niños se arriesgan todos los días al cruzar la frontera desde una zona de guerra del narco en ciudad Juárez, México, hacia su secundaria ubicada en El paso. Alguna vez plagada por corrupción, la escuela, como sus estudiantes, resurge y lucha por alcanzar la grandeza. Los deportes tiene un papel integral en el filme y en la vida de los estudiantes; es una manera de construir comunidad, de pertenecer, de aprender a superar la adversidad y de construir autoconfianza y respeto hacia sí mismos. A través de las experiencias de estos jóvenes atletas, comenzamos a comprender el precario mundo de la frontera y a través de sus esperanzas entendemos sus desencantos y sus triunfos.
