Far From Home Teaser: Return to Uganda

Galen Knowles continues to document the incredible journey of Brolin Mawejje on his way through med school and to the next Winter Olympics in Far From Home: Uganda to the Tetons. This independent film, which is still in the making, tells Brolin’s story from when he left his home country of Uganda as a young boy to come to America and live in Massachusetts with his long-lost mother. After a rollercoaster of emotions, Brolin found a release in the mountains of Massachusetts with the snowboarding community. Now 21, Brolin is enrolled in a pre-med program and is shredding his way to the Winter Olympics to compete for Uganda. In this teaser, we can have a glimpse at his worries as he returns to Uganda for the first time in years. And if you haven’t yet, check out the first teaser.
