21 DAYS UNDER THE SKY is an unconventional true story about those men who won’t conform. Four guys meet in San Francisco to start a 3,800 mile ride down the Lincoln Highway – the oldest coast to coast route connecting the east to the west. They are riding vintage “choppers”; bikes prone to break down or run out of gas. Through the highs and lows of a long journey, this story examines the timeless American love affair with the motorcycle and an even greater American tradition: the road trip. Beautifully directed and filmed through the lens of famed motorcycle lifestyle photographer, Michael Schmidt, and written by poet and journalist Kate O’Conner Morris, this widescreen cinematic experience produced by Steven Johnson and Dice Magazine is the first of its kind, and is recognized as the seminal “chopper” film of this generation. Narrated by actor Robert Patrick, who delivers the deep ominous voice of the bikers internal thought, in the words we wish we could attain to describe our feelings for what it’s like to be on an old chopper; racing through deserts and forest roads, salt flats, and two lane blacktops, camping on rain-soaked grounds, and emerging grease-stained from underneath your broken-down bike on the side of the road. 21 DAYS UNDER THE SKY is the one time the words EPIC and ADVENTURE can actually be used without the normal trappings of how these terms are tossed around in social media.It’s not a biker movie about crime, drugs, and women, though these are obvious byproducts of a life lived full. This is a side of motorcycle living that isn’t often told. Their journey is about the vast heavenly landscapes, the proud people they encounter, and the small towns they rest in. It is a contemporary look at the American Dream, and the fearless few that have the guts to go without a plan. A reminder of what real adventure feels like.
