Artist and life-long nerd Johannes Grenzfurthner is taking us on a personal road trip from the West Coast to the East Coast of the USA, to introduce us to places and people that shaped and inspired his art and politics. Traceroute wants to chase and question the ghosts of nerddom's past, present and future. An exhilarating tour de farce into the guts of trauma, obsession and cognitive capitalism. Written by
The last segment of the film shows a screenshot of a HoustonPress online article: "The 10 Worst People in Houston Restaurants". This article prominently features an image of Johannes Grenzfurthner awkwardly eating Thai food. At a public screening Grenzfurthner shared the story that he has never been to Houston in his life. The image is a public domain photograph taken by his friend David Fine in San Francisco. See more »

I'm not much of a geek or a nerd but I love good films, especially when they take me places I'd otherwise not see or experience.
Johannes Grenzfurthner is a self-described lifelong nerd who takes us on an informative and humorous road trip across the US, visiting many of the sacred sites of Geekdom. Area 51! The JPL (uh, kind of)! The Very Large Array! And many more
From the West Coast to the East Coast, Johannes meets and interviews interesting and unusual people, among them a sex-worker nerd, a guy who designed and distributes an easy-access Geiger counter, a woman who sells Trinitite (look it up), a compulsive archivist/collector of obsolete computer equipment, and many more
Grenzfurthner was born in 1975, around the same time personal computing and digital tech was born. They grew up together, so to speak. Now that all of us are swimming in the deep end of this technological pool, who better to give us a personal tour back to our future(s)? If you're Johannes' age or older you'll enjoy the walk down memory lane. If you're a younger person you'll marvel at the primitive equipment that launched the Digital Revolution. And everyone will get a glimpse of Upcoming Possibilities.
The charm of TRACEROUTE is that the very likable Grenzfurthner keeps it playful, never taking his subject (and, more importantly, HIMSELF) too seriously. This is a fun and light-hearted nerd/geek road film you don't have to be a nerd or geek to enjoy, and if you're not careful you'll actually learn something.
