About the Movie
A high speed roadtrip through modern creativity, Station to Station is a revolutionary feature comprised of 62 one-minute films highlighting an exciting and eclectic mix of artists, musicians, writers, places, and perspectives. In the summer of 2013, a train designed as a kinetic light sculpture by artist Doug Aitken traveled from New York City to San Francisco over 24 days. Rolling into ten stations on the route, the train set in motion a series of happenings, each unique to its location and mix of creative participants. The film includes profiles, intimate moments on the train, conversations, and performances at the happenings: Ed Ruscha describing the discoveries to be made in the great American landscape; Beck performing with a gospel choir in the Mojave desert; Jackson Browne reflecting on the influence of the railroad on his music, and many more. Station to Station is a kaleidoscope of experience and artistic production, as much as it is a story of our evolving creative culture.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Much of the time, "Station to Station" feels less like a film than a very well-produced music video.
Fresh: It suggests that a one-minute part can be the whole for one viewer or that, conversely, the whole is made up of an infinite amount of smaller parts that can each tell only a small part of the story.
Fresh: Remarkably, given the disjointed structure, this film gels elegantly.
Fresh: Banding together a community of outliers, wunderkinds and indie kids, Station to Station is a bubbling gumbo that Aitken evolves into a newly sculpted vernacular of dissolving landscapes, soundscapes and visual splendours.
