Sundance Film Festival (1992)
Award-winning documentary filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman took a journey through unfamiliar lands—in their own country. Having spent most of their lives on one coast or the other, they wondered what mysteries lay in between. So they piled into a van with a film crew, talking to ordinary Americans they met along the way—who talk sometimes eloquently, often poignantly, about their lives, their hopes, and their dreams.
"Kaleidescopic ... The filmmakers' acute sense of compassion is visible in every frame. Where are We? has the weird ephemeral quality of walking through someone else's dream."
- San Francisco Chronicle
"A riveting video album of an 18-day sweep across the U.S. of A."
- Jan Stuart, New York Newsday
"Where are We? is filled with cameos of Americans whose lives, taken together, form the truth of our national dream."
- LA Weekly
