Intensely moving and occasionally melancholy, the films of Hometown Heroes celebrate the free spirits, magnetic personalities, and enigmatic figures that lend our southern cities character. Iron-willed and fiercely independent, with liberated world views that serve to awaken the complacent around them, these Hometown Heroes inspire with their unbridled creative energy and manic desire to see their dreams realized. A collection of absorbing life studies that brim with hard won, unflagging optimism, the documentary and narrative shorts of Hometown Heroes challenge audiences to live more authentic lives. Indomitable and undaunted, our Hometown Heroes chart their own course, and in so doing encourage others to do the same.
