The New Englanders

by Jeff Augustin


Directed by Hal Brooks

The newly radicalized mixed-race daughter of an interracial gay couple yearns to break out of her small town and become a legend, like her hero Lauryn Hill. Meanwhile, one of her dads reconnects with his high school love as her other dad fights for an idealized suburban family life that never existed. Told over the course of seven nights, great clarity comes when there’s nothing to see but trees and nothing to do but contemplate the stark silence.
