The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema is proud to announce that Rick Prelinger, American archivist, filmmaker, writer, and outsider librarian, will be here February 14, 2014 to present his new work, No More Road Trips?, a feature-length, live, cinematic event exhibiting an eclectic montage of rediscovered and rarely-seen film clips artfully assembled from hundreds of home movies and amateur films.
No More Road Trips? explores the highways and byways of a period in American history that may well be in our rearview mirror. Focusing on road culture and the question of whether the U.S.A. as a nation may have reached “peak travel,” No More Road Trips? is a perpetual work in progress—an interactive movie-going experience that can only be completed when you, the audience, lend your voice to provide the soundtrack and narration.
