Behind the Wheel: A Film by LAFCO
Official Site: http://BEHINDTHEWHEELMOVIE.COM
Seeing film as art is easy. Remembering that art is about challenging the world can be hard. Putting film art into action? Well, that can be damn near impossible for people... but not the members of the LA Film Co-op. Determined to make their own state of the union address and filled with youthful energy, they bought a bus, fit a modern day editing suite into it and headed out from coast to coast, interviewing notable artists wherever they found them.
Bumping into such luminaries as Dead Prez, director Oliver Stone, guerilla poster artist Robbie Conal, among all those citizens just living day-to-day, the Film Co-op has created a profound record for their time. With a new age of change sweeping into America with 2009, Behind the Wheel is an amazing final summary of the Bush years. It captures with joy and anger the spirit of resistance at a time when the majority of Americans felt disenfranchised from a country and a leader who didn't stand for them.
