Directed by Robert Kramer | 1989
"An extraordinary, fluidly shaped mosaic of the fragmented pockets of American life that together compose the mainstream."
—The New York Times

Expat filmmaker and radical leftist Robert Kramer set out to rediscover the US on a road trip from Maine to Florida in this epic documentary-fiction hybrid. With his alter-ego “Doc” (McIsaac) standing in for him, Kramer captures encounters with everyone from New York City school kids to Pat Robertson supporters to members of a witches’ coven, resulting in a fascinating, elegiac mosaic of America in the 1980s.
