Gasoline Rainbow, «a living organism»

Presented at Punto de Encuentro, Gasoline Rainbow, the first foray into fiction by the hitherto documentary filmmakers Ross brothers, reveals itself as a sort of Easy Rider (Dennis Hopper, 1969) of post-Trump America, a film about a group of teenagers from Oregon who set sail for the Pacific coast that connects with great works of indie cinema such as My Private Idaho (Gus van Sant, 1991) and whose authors have defined it as «a living organism» due to the continuous adaptations and changes of the script or the locations depending on the day to day and the contributions of the performers.

«The idea of escapism is there», said the filmmakers during an interview at the festival, in which they also emphasized how «exhausting» the shooting was as it was located in different locations. «We do what we want to do and I think it’s important to have our own voice», said the Ross brothers to defend the conception of an authentic American independent film that they illustrated with The Sweet East (Sean Price Williams), in competition in the Official Selection.
