We're packing up the car, driving across the country and documenting family, friends, and  everything intriguing we come across from los angeles to connecticut, in an attempt to unravel the mystery of  my family's fraternal side including my relation to Andy Warhol,  and to see just what's in that mystery box waiting in bridgeport. It's about what it means to be connected by; blood, passions, and/or experiences. This is a project of optimism and tenacity, meeting  relatives and strangers along the way, documenting through still and moving pictures; people and their stories,the countryside, cities and small towns, and the adventure and uncertainty only add to the depth of possibilities on the open road. 

We purchased a lot of new gear, and every penny we raise will go towards to completion of this documentary.  Taking unpaid time off from work, as well as all the expenses associated with the trip and production, are really adding up; rental cars, gas, permits, tolls, hotels, and film. All your contributions will go towards the production of this film, and don't forget kickstarter is all or nothing, your help will ensure we reach our goal! We leave in a week, please don't put it off! Thanks so much!
