Storyline

In Pursuit of Panama chronicles the life-changing adventures of best-friends Ryan Swan and Garrett Martin. They inform friends and family that they intend to drive a fatigued, old Volkswagen from their hometown in Oregon to the far end of Central America. The film takes the audience on the road and inside the minds of the protagonists, where physical journeys serve as subtle metaphors for inner journeys, and inner journeys are elucidated by the people Garrett and Ryan meet along the way. At its heart, In Pursuit of Panama is a film about the paths we take in that distinctive transition from youth to adulthood. A thoughtful look at the inhibitions that trap us and the freedoms we may attain, at the possibilities of our dreams, and the real, tangible practicalities of them. Written by J. Garrett Martin

A Kerouac-esquire journey from youth to adulthood, and Oregon to Panama.
13 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Riverside International Film Festival and I highly recommend it as the antidote to this summer's Michael Bay drivel. It is hilarious, poignant, and totally unique. In Pursuit of Panama is both the most honest documentary I've ever seen, and also the most engaging in terms of story and narrative arc. I truly felt like the film was speaking to me personally, as if the filmmakers new of my most personal regrets and triumphs as they ruminated on their own, but I talked to a lot of people at the festival who felt like the film was custom-tailored to their lives as well. I don't know if or when it will be available in theaters or on DVD, but I'm looking out for it because I'd like to see it again as soon as possible.
