UP HEARTBREAK HILL


Thomas and Tamara are track stars at their rural New Mexico high schooL Like many teenagers, they are torn  between  the Lure of brighter   coLLege  futures  elsewhere  and  the ties that bind them to home. For these teens, however, home is  an impoverished town  on the  Navajo reservation, and Leaving means separating from family, tradition and the Land that has been theirs  for generations. Erica Scharf's Up Heartbreak Hillis a moving Look at high  school graduation  for a  new generation  of Americans struggling to be both Native and modern.


A co-production of Long Distance Films, Native American  Public  Telecommunications,  ITVS, POV's Diverse  Voices  Project  and  New  Mexico  PBS, with funding  provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. A co-presentation with  Native American Public Telecommunications.
