A coast-to-coast journey of two washed-up skateboard buddies forms the catalyst for this hilarious hybrid of documentary and fiction across a tumultuous, turbulent USA! Robert Boerleider (playing a fictionalized version of himself) is a Dutch-Surinamese jokester from Amsterdam who wants nothing more than to finally see America. His old buddy Maximon Monihan, raised in Seattle but living in Brooklyn, is much more cynical about his homeland. As serendipity would have it, Monihan’s mother has just gifted him her old car, provided that he’s willing to pick it up in California. Monihan calls his friend to let him know the good news and, shortly thereafter, they drive East together, set on making Boerleider’s dream road-trip a reality. Hitch a ride on this deadpan expedition through the disheveled states of all things red, white and blue! Director: Maximon Monihan (US/Amsterdam 2017) 85 min.
