Re: BN early 90's Hobo John T. Davis
actually, this ones pretty good also-
To celebrate the first anniversary of QFT Player's launch we present a special free screening of Route 66, John T. Davis' documentary which has strikingly renewed resonance today. Available to watch for free from Fri 2 - Sun 4 April.
John T. Davis' Route 66 is an epic road film chronicling the history and closure in 1981 of the iconic highway that, mythologised in music, film and literature, spanned 2,500 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles, traversed eight states and cut through the heart of Middle America. The film features an anonymous sojourner driving a cherry red Chevy Impala ragtop, who travels the highway west. Through his eyes, and through Davisís camera lens, we encounter the underbelly of the US and the shattering of the American Dream.
"Just like Route 66, America was grinding and cracking at the seams." - John T. Davis.
