Follow Me Home is Still Around
6 December 2008 | by (Oakland CA United States) – See all my reviews

Though it was never picked up by a theatrical distributor, FOLLOW ME HOME continues to be shown on college campuses and at conferences as part of a program offered by Speak Out, a non-profit educational organization in Oakland CA (www.speakoutnow.org). The feature film is accompanied by a speaker - director Benjamin Bratt used to go out with the film and more recently his sister, Lakota Harden. The film - called "a work of genius" by Pultizer Prize winning author Alice Walker - is also shown in public screenings from time to time. It continues to especially resonate with young people. A powerful film!

Here's the official Speak Out description: { FOLLOW ME HOME } An Exploration of Race & Identity from Director-Writer Peter Bratt

Peter Bratt(Quechua) wrote and directed "Follow Me Home," a defiant, humorous, poetic tale exploring race and identity. Weaving together traditions of Native, African and Latin cultures, the film tells the story of four artists and their journey across the American landscape. Tudee (Jesse Borrego), Abel (Peter's brother Benjamin Bratt), Kaz (Calvin Levels and Freddy (Steve Reevis) are joined by Evey (Alfre Woodard) an enigmatic African American woman on a journey of her own.

The film earned Bratt the Best Director award at the 1996 American Indian Film Festival and the Best Feature Film Audience Award at the 1996 San Francisco International Film Festival. It was also an Official Selection in the 1996 Sundance Film Festival.
