This is a coast-to-coast drive across the United States:
Four interstates, two turnpikes and a highway.
Two bays, three mountain ranges and a divide.
Eleven states, twenty-two ecoregions, seven metropolises and eight state capitals.
Five days, four time zones and a continent.
From sea level to eleven-thousand feet and back again.
From the original colonies to their manifest destiny.
This is a contemporary portrait of the American landscape.
From Sea To Shining Sea is a contemporary portrait of the United States of America experienced via a cross-county time-lapse video and audio collage. This incredible landscape diversity – through twenty-two eco-regions from the Atlantic, over the Rockies, and to the Pacific – is united by a common visual element: the Interstate Highway System. By watching the film, one essentially takes the journey itself, and gains a greater appreciation for the sheer beauty of the American landscape.
