My first feature-film. This hybrid-documentary has been an overwhelming force in my life, a labor-of-love 7 years in the making. For Thousands of Miles was inspired by my own 4,200 mile bicycle trip, which I took when I was just 21 years old... after I returned home to my small town, I couldn’t shake this strange feeling... whatever it was, it lingered for years and years after the road had ended.
Many years after my own trip, I happened across this quote,
It was this slow, disconnected, post-voyage experience that I wanted to visually and tonally articulate. The film is less a road-trip film, and more a reflection on what the road represents.
