Developed through the Sundance Institute, and featured at the Sundance Film Festival, Drunktown’s Finest is Sydney Freeland’s feature film debut and her response to a news story that characterized her hometown of Gallup, New Mexico, as “Drunktown, USA.”
On a desolate Navajo reservation in New Mexico, three young Native Americans – an adopted college-bound Christian girl, a rebellious and angry father-to-be, and a promiscuous transsexual – strive to escape the hardships of life and search for love and acceptance.
