"Rich Hill" - Sundance U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Documentary

The 2014 Sundance Film Festival U.S. Grand Jury Prize for Documentary went to Rich Hill, a feature documentary by directors Tracy Droz Tragos and Andrew Droz Palermo.

The crew spent a year with young friends Andrew, Harley and Appachey in a declining, rural-American town. The boys live with hope amid unfortunate and overwhelming circumstances, and limited resources.

It is uncommon to see a documentary in theaters, however Rich Hill, which has garnered additional recognition, opens in select theaters in August, and in Kansas City August 8th. 

Vanity Fair's Hollywood just listed Rich Hill as one of nine independent movies to see this summer. 

Since the movie's completion, Harley was diagnosed with a brain tumor and has undergone surgery. If you care to make a donation to help with his medical expenses, you may click here.
