SPOKANE — When Seth M. Holmes was growing up on Spokane's South Hill during the 1980s, the Lewis & Clark High School graduate dreamed of becoming a physician or an anthropologist, not a filmmaker.

Holmes, 46, is a medical doctor and an anthropology professor at USC. The latter is the reason he made a moving, award-winning film, "First Time Home," which earned a Rising Voices Film Award from the Portland Film Festival in November and a Spotlight Film Award last month.
