From the frozen woods of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula emerge three families, each weathering the challenges of recession-era America while preparing for the Sault Ste. Marie I-500, an annual snowmobile marathon. First-time director Bentgen’s gentle observational gaze and meticulously framed, breathtaking images form the nexus of this nuanced portrait of Midwestern working-class life. An official selection of True/False and Hot Docs and winner of Most Innovative Feature Film at Visions du Reel.
