América (Erick Stoll, Chase Whiteside)


The uplifting, soulful story of three mismatched brothers who are brought together to care for their charismatic 93-year-old grandmother, América. These young men have to face the chasm between adolescent yearning and adult responsibilities as they learn to provide for her daily needs. Shot over a three-year period with an affectionate, watchful eye, it blows up an intimate family portrait onto a large, cinematic canvas. A warm and poignant portrait film about brotherhood and family ties.


Erick Stoll and Chase Whiteside met at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. They cofounded the political web series NewLeftMedia, which tracked political movements under the Obama presidency, and codirected Lifelike. Stoll additionally codirected Good White People. They were featured in Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film in 2017.
