No More Road Trips?: A Dream Ride Through 20th Century America Made from Home Movies

Synopsis
A dream ride through 20th-century America made entirely from home movies, asks whether we’ve come to the end of the open road. Have we reached "peak travel"? Can we still find fortune (and ourselves) on the highway? Are we nomads or stay-at-homes? A journey from the Atlantic Coast to California made from a collection of 9,000 home movies, NO MORE ROAD TRIPS? reveals hidden histories embedded. This is a silent movie meant to be shown to audiences that ask questions, make comments, disagree with one another, and generally act like vocal sports spectators or the rowdies in the pit in front of the Elizabethan stage. A project of Creative Capital. The film has been made available under the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-Share-Alike license.
