Family, football, and history come to life in an intimate portrait of the Dean family, longtime residents of the historic town of Pahokee, Florida. Filmmaker Ira McKinley takes us on a journey back home to the land of sugarcane where he reconnects with his niece and nephew and explores a shared family history that spans seven generations. Told through stories that transcend space and time, Outta the Muck presents an intimate portrait of a community that resists despair with love, remaining fiercely self-determined while forging its own unique narrative of Black achievement.

The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. This screening is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and through partnerships with Working Films, Cucalorus and WHQR.
