FIVE YEARS NORTH

ART OF IMPACT

US 2020, 85min Directors ZACH INGRASCI, CHRIS TEMPLE
Winner of DocPitch 2019, Five Years North is a film a decade in the making. After meeting and befriending a young Guatemalan boy named Luis while filming their first film Living on One Dollar, co-directors Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple followed a now-15-year-old Luis to New York City to forge a new life as an undocumented immigrant. Ambitious and complex in its scope, Five Years North captures many of Luis’ struggles in the U.S., from trying to learn English to finding temporary jobs, and juxtaposes them with a portrait of Judy, a Cuban American ICE agent patrolling the neighborhood where Luis now lives. With intimate access to their subjects, Ingrasci and Temple delicately capture two sides of one of America’s most heated and complicated issues. In English, Spanish, and Kaqchikel with English subtitles
