MORE ABOUT FOLLOW ME HOME - WINNER  Best Feature Film Audience Award, San Francisco International Film Festival 1996 - OFFICIAL SELECTION  1996 Sundance Film Festival - BEST DIRECTOR AWARD 1996 American Indian Film Festival, San Francisco Pulitzer Prize winning author Alice Walker calls Follow Me Home "a work of genius!" PETER BRATT(Quechua) wrote and directed  FOLLOW ME HOME, a defiant, humorous, poetic tale exploring race and identity in America.  By weaving together traditions of Native, African and Latin cultures, the film tells the story of  four artists and their journey across the American landscape. Tudee (Jesse Borrego), Abel (Peter's brother Benjamin Bratt), Kaz (Calvin Levels), and Freddy (Steve Reevis) are joined by Evey (Alfre Woodard), an enigmatic African American woman on a journey of her own. (The film is 1 hour, 40 minutes and is followed by a post screening discussion with Peter Bratt) "This is an incredible movie: The first American film emerging direct from the heart and the headset of The New American Majority."              -June Jordan, award-winning African American poet, essayist and political activist " Follow Me Home is a dazzling film that not only confronts the nightmare of today's dehumanized, racist society, but also suggests how we might build a different world.                 - Elizabeth Martinez, award-winning Chicana writer, activist and professor "Follow Me Home is a wonderful is a breathtaking journey through the present, the past and toward the future. To whatever extent "American" fits into --or collides with-- your identity, you must see this film."                 - Angela Davis, scholar, activist, author "This is a film for reflection, discussion and revelation. Do not miss it!"                 - Dr. Claudia Highbaugh, Chaplain, Harvard Divinity School "Follow Me Home is a film of rare exception and power. Seeing it is to participate in a ceremony of memory, justice, reclamation and creation - a new, and simultaneously very old, vision of home."                 - Jane Caputi, Professor of American Studies, University of New Mexico " A terrific Film! Benjamin Bratt and Alfre Woodard head a remarkable cast."                 - Jeffrey Lyons, WNBC "A spellbinding and often humourous look into the psyche of this country is provided though strong individual performances... this may be one of the most interesting films any of us have seen in awhile."                 - Joyce Young, San Francisco Bay Guardian ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Speak Out is the country's only national not-for-profit organization that promotes progressive voices on campuses and in communities nationwide.
