Lamerica. Portraits of the United States
Lamerica, a visual narrative, takes the viewer on a lyrical journey across the states, through 16mm frames evocative of postcards from the road.
The film is reminiscent of the epic photographic essays of artists such as Richard Avedon through the rural world of the United States. A serene, sober and convenient film to discover a little shown side of the "land of opportunity".
