This is a reworking of writer-director Vladimir De Fontenay’s 2013 short film also titled Mobile Homes, which screened at the SXSW Film Festival and Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival and received 1st prize at the Wasserman Awards – NYU Graduate Film School’s top honor – as well as a National Board of Review award.
