Andrew, Harley and Appachey are three teenagers trying to survive in a poor rural midwest town in the US. They all belong to broken homes and their future looks very complicated. However, each of them faces life very differently. Rich Hill is a bleak portrait of capitalism and longterm crisis through the eyes of three teenagers who become adults onscreen. The film is shot with tenderness, but without being condescending.


Andrew Droz Palermo and Tracy Droz Tragos make their feature film debut with this impressive and moving film. According to them, it was short very intuitively, although its photography is excellent and very contrasting with the harshness of the lives it depicts. In 2014, Rich Hill won Best Documentary awards at Sundance Film Festival, Kansas City International Film Festival, and Sarasota Film Festival.
