Directed by: Betty Bastidas

Run Time: 1 hr 10 min

Country of Origin: Ecuador

Synopsis: DreamTown is a documentary about the precarious dream of a young Afro-Ecuadorian soccer player, Anibal Chala, as he strives to make it to the professional leagues, and eventually sees his dreams become reality. This coming-of-age story follows Anibal over the span of six years, from the youth minor leagues until he secures a place on Ecuador’s First Division team, ranking among the country’s top 10 players at the young age of 17. While DreamTown explores the challenges that Afro-Ecuadorian soccer players face, it is ultimately a universal story of hope and triumph. At its core, it is a hero’s journey in a world where our Latin American heroes are rarely depicted as black, and where the success stories of the African diaspora are often left untold.
