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.
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.
