A group of teenagers set out on a road trip to the Pacific coast, facing obstacles along the way.


Why watch this film?

Gasoline Rainbow, a film selected at festivals like SXSW and Venice, is directed by brothers Bill and Turner Ross, who often blur the lines between documentary and fiction. This story is about five teenage friends from a small Oregon town who, with no major plans and school behind them, decide to embark on a journey in an old van to a place they have never been: the Pacific beach. Cheerful and optimistic, it is a portrait of Generation Z's ideals and attitudes, where the destination is not as important as the journey and the people we meet along the way.
