Over 24 days, the Station to Station train traveled 4,000 miles from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
As it stopped in large cities and remote locations, a constantly changing group of artists, musicians and performers took part in a series of explosive happenings.
The Station to Station feature film collages an amazing cross-section of people and places, from icons of culture to a hitchhiker found on a desert road: Beck performing with a gospel choir in the Mojave desert; artist Olafur Eliasson creating art from the speed of the train; Ed Ruscha reflecting on the modern landscape; Dan Deacon performing electronic music in a pulsing audience; the Savages and Suicide igniting the happenings. Each of these short films explores the new frontier of creative expression.
The Station to Station film is a fast moving road trip through modern creativity.
