Xavier (Atibon Nazaire) is a hard-working man whose job in demolition in Little Haiti is helping tear down the very neighborhood his family immigrated to. He dreams of moving the family to a larger home, but his wife Esperance (Sheila Anozier) already works two jobs and is unsure of how they'll afford the move. His Americanized son Junior (comedian Chris Renois) has dropped out of college to pursue a stand-up career, with little earning potential to help with household expenses. Winner of the Someone to Watch award at the 2024 Independent Spirit Awards, first-time director and co-writer Monica Sorrelle crafts a poignant narrative exploring the complexities of the American Dream—where economic advancement comes at the expense of others, where children abandon their immigrant roots, and where microaggressions permeate daily life. Set against the backdrop of a swiftly gentrifying Miami, Sorrelle's Mountains underscores the loss of neighborhoods where the unique features of its ethnically specific communities are physically and metaphorically razed.
