Milwaukee Film Festival

MOUNTAINS follows Xavier, a demolition worker who dreams of buying a bigger house for his family. Junior, his college-dropout son, struggles against his rigid expectations by day, while quietly pursuing a career as a stand-up comic by night. Monica Sorelle’s narrative feature debut is a slice-of-life story of a family man contending with aspiration and housing insecurity in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. What results is a loving portrait of the Haitian community in Miami.
