Road Trip, 2 minutes and 15 seconds, Super 8 to 2K, sound, 2023

Cars roaring by on the interstate highways, glossy gas station pumps calling for customers and a sea of patriotic American flags – this is the iconic Road Trip, a well established pilgrimage for artists looking for visual inspiration within the vast American urban landscape. It became a 20th century rite of passage for photographers Walker Evans, Robert Frank and Stephen Shore and now continues into the 21st century with contemporary artists. Road Trip is a travelogue documenting a quick trip from Buffalo, New York, to Providence, Rhode Island, and back. Inspired by Jack Kerouac’s On The Road (1957), the film focuses on unique American imagery from the Prairie style houses of Frank Lloyd Wright to highways, flags, churches and even a T-model Ford weathervane. Peering out the window of a moving car, Road Trip shows the American road trip well travelled and still inspiring.
