Documentary filmmakers Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas continue to capture stories from Pahokee to share with a worldwide audience. Previous short docs like The Send-Off and The Rabbit Hunt have been honored at prestige festivals from Sundance to Berlin, and their latest story landed them on the French Riviera. Skip Day, which follows Pahokee High School seniors who drive 50 miles east to spend the day on Riviera Beach in celebration of the “skip day” tradition before graduation, was accepted to the Cannes Film Festival and won the Illy Short Film Award at Quinzaine des Réalisateurs. Two of the featured characters from Pahokee traveled with the filmmakers to walk the red carpet, exposed to some of the most world-renowned international filmmakers on the planet. “It was an incredible experience and we were so honored to be recognized,” said Bresnan.
