Austin Film Festival presents Audience Award Series: Homestate
Homestate received the 2016 Austin Film Festival Texas Independent Audience Award. The film is playing as part of AFF’s monthly Audience Award Series, sponsored by Hiscox Insurance.
Homestate depicts a week in the life of a seemingly run-of-the-mill family. Harvey struggles to keep his new business afloat, at any cost, in the uncertain economy. Crystal keeps Pearl, their 10 year old daughter, on schedule and manages the household responsibilities. When Josh, Crystal’s troubled brother, shows up with no place to go, the balance of their routine is thrown into disarray. This unexpected addition to the family sets off a series of events that exposes underlying issues, inadequacies and suspicions which threaten the foundation of their family ties.
