Co-directors Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan (PAHOKEE, 2019) return to HIFF with this brilliant portrait of a nudist resort in the Florida Everglades. Filmed over one season at the campsite, and culminating in their annual Mid-Winter Naturist Festival, NAKED GARDENS sensitively and respectfully explores the stories of the individuals and families who choose to live there, for reasons ranging from affordability to non-conformist values to healing from past trauma. Through their stunning signature verité style, Lucas and Bresnan capture the sublime tranquility of the lush, tropical resort and quietly challenge preconceptions of nudism in this unlikely snapshot of contemporary America.

Scheduled to attend: Directors Patrick Bresnan + Ivete Lucas
