An American Journey: In Robert Frank's Footsteps

A FILM BY Philippe Séclier


Half a century later, French director Philippe Seclier decided to follow in Robert Frank's footsteps to explore the spirit of the "Beat Generation" and the impact of his book, The Americans, not only on the art of photography, but also on American culture. From Texas to Montana, from Nebraska to Louisiana, from New York to San Francisco, An American Journey is a 15,000-mile odyssey through contemporary America, moving between past and present, photography and cinema, and two Americas, seperated by time.
