When I was in high school I was lucky enough to have the Sundance channel to come home to after school. One movie that always stuck with me was a documentary made in 1997 by two 26 year old girls who took to the road with some video cameras and a laptop to explore the concept of the American dream. I remember being impressed with the range of those they interviewed...scholars, politicians, musicians, writers, the kid at the gas station...
The two girls, Shainee Gabel and Kristen Hahn managed to interview Robert Redford, Michael Stipe, Studs Terkel, Winona LaDuke, George McGovern, Willie Nelson, Geraldine Ferraro, Hunter S. Thompson, John Waters, George Stephanopoulos, Chuck D., Tom Robbins, Krist Novoselic and so many more. Here are a few highlights:
