Two brothers ride recycled bicycles through the American South over two years, seeking radical locality amid rampant globalization. As they learn to survive on the road, several modern homesteading communities take them in, guiding them toward the west coast and turning their idea of the American Dream on its head.
DIRECTORS: NOAH & TIM HUSSIN
Tim and Noah Hussin are brothers born and raised in the suburbs of Florida. Feeling a lack of community and belonging in their youth, they set out on bicycles to discover similarly disaffected individuals seeking out their own versions of freedom and purpose. Their first feature documentary made during the bike trip, America Recycled, premiered at AmDocs Film Festival where it won Best American Feature Documentary. They are now based in Oakland, California and continue to tell the stories of radical and underrepresented people.
