“Far From Home” teaser

Coming from humble beginnings in Uganda, Brolin Mawejje found his way to America as a 12 year old only to face abandonment and isolation. Through luck and determination, Brolin found his niche in the snowboard community. The snowboarding journey he has embarked on has taken him from the icy slopes of the east coast to Jackson Hole and now Salt Lake City, UT. A current pre-med student at Westminster College, Brolin aspires to become an orthopedic surgeon along with intentions of representing Uganda in the 2018 Winter Olympics for the first time.

Far From Home: Uganda to the Tetons will tell his story through the organic dialogue of those who either helped him along or tossed him aside. The film will retrace Brolin’s steps from his early life in America, to his monumental achievements as a state wrestler, nationally ranked snowboarder, and neuro-oncology intern at Harvard.
