Micha (17th Cine Las Americas International Film Festival)
Opening with "The Good Kind" by Ofelia Yanez.

A film by Eugene Martin
USA, Coming of Age/Drama, 2013
75 min, RED, Color
English


The death eight years ago of Michas' Lebanese father left him and his Mexican mother destitute. The sudden death of his mother leaves him no choice but to leave Mexico and seek work and a future in the United States. Micha attempts to navigate the northern route of migrant and service workers to build a life for himself in Texas. After stays on the streets in Brownsville and Dallas, Micha lands in the small town of Denton, Texas. There he meets a homeless young woman, Penny, who helps him learn how to survive and find community. MICHA has recently started on the festival circuit, beginning at the Thin Line Festival in Denton and the Athens International Film + Video Festival before heading to Austin.
