Hey folks, this thread is to suggest movies to watch for this year's jamboree. Any suggestions should be related to travel culture in some way, although shorts/skits/youtube videos between movies can be just about anything.

What travel related movies do you think others need to see?

AMERICAN HONEY: Andrea Arnold's outsider perspective on wayward Midwestern youth.
ON THE ROAD: Perfectly serviceable adaptation of the Kerouac novel.
SCARECROW: There are few things better than Gene Hackman and Al Pacino as road frenemies...
WALKABOUT: Nicolas Roeg classic about two Australian kids lost in the Outback.
WILD: Jean-Marc Vallée's adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's Pacific Crest Trail memoir.
WENDY & LUCY: Traveler gets waylaid in Oregon.

As a bonus, a few good films about vagrants:

DARK DAYS: Doc on NYC's "Mole People."
HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT: A gritty tour through star Arielle Holmes's former life.
THE LOVERS ON THE BRIDGE: A painter and a fire-breather find love on the streets of Paris.

have you come across the World Traveller Adventures trilogy - 3 films about the European Free Party scene... first one is about Desert Storm Sound System traveling to Bosnia during the war taking aid and trying to put on parties for the local youth... second one is Total Resistance taking a convoy of vehicles from Europe to India... third one is a group of French guys travelling to Africa to kick start the rave scene over there..... I don't know how you guys feel about raves in the US but the free party / teknival scene was a massive underground / DIY phenomenon across Europe in the 90's and 00's.... any way this series did get a proper DVD release at some point but i expect it's on YouTube in the usual grainy, compressed to fuck format if you wanna have a look.......

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
