Travel Stop

2017
16mm / color / sound / 19min.

Shot at the World’s Largest Truckstop in Walcott, Iowa, the film contemplates the interiors of a Midwestern highway rest stop, creating an essayistic portrait of a familiar site of travel and transience. Lead by texts concerned with the incongruities of supermodernity and nostalgia, Travel Stop examines how individual identity is called upon, emptied, overburdened, or parceled when traversing the US interstate.
