Storyline

A captivating cross-country adventure brought to life by two young women who take the road to explore and expose the American Dream. Armed with a Powerbook and a couple of cameras, filmmakers Gabel (writer/director of Golden Globe nominated A Love Song for Bobby Long) and Hahn (Executive Producer of Academy Award winning The Departed) find themselves driving recklessly through the back roads of Aspens with Hunter S. Thompson, chilling out with Willie Nelson on his tour bus, musing with Robert Redford in the mountains of Sundance and inadvertently breaking the rules in the West Wing-- all the while chronicling the people they meet along the way in gas stations and diners. Anthem is a unique and irreverent time capsule of the American Spirit at the dawn of the 21st century.

the film that makes you want to make a film.
11 March 2000 | by addiquedSee all my reviews

It's creatively narrated, and effective with it's pace and editing. Shot on video with two camera's images spliced together... These two young producers host a sequence of insightful excursions around the states dealing with the question of opportunity in the american dream. and just aimlessly enough to lend the style of their generation.

great depiction in truth.
