NYC PREMIERE The “muck” here refers to the rich soil in the small south Florida town of Pahokee, where folks fish, hunt rabbits, and play a whole lotta football. Co-directors Bhawin Suchak and Pahokee native Ira McKinley introduce us to the Deans, highlighting the everyday lives of this loving family and their close-knit community. This beautifully filmed documentary deftly captures the rural beauty of this coastal town, and delivers a warm, rarely-seen depiction of an African American community. – Karen McMullen
