The basis of the documentary is rooted on a simple concept. Depicting ghosts towns through a specific road crossing the western part of the United States of America. Beyond these cities, a peculiar attention will be shown by searching and encountering the local population, those who decided to stay there, in an old fashioned style, facing a continuous renewal time lapse.??
The movie is about drawing a portrait of the local individuals met on the road and inside the chosen cities. This will be done through a simple process that will be repeated as a formal process throughout the documentary, but let’s keep a dash of suspense and tell you later about it…??Who are those people? What keeps them here ? This documentary is a will to report, an attempt to understand the motivation of the dwellers through their testimony revealing their own time and space interpretation.??
We will focus on characters such as the roads, the time and space dimension, the self projection of fantasize pictures, the human memory. The latter being a key element on the self construction, the identity we are building, cultivating and doing our best to pass it on as a legacy repeating the continuous circle of life.
“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” – Friedrich Nietzsche.
