Two youths bicker their way up the east coast into a discomforting transition into adulthood in this early Super-8 experimental short by Rhys Ernst (We've Been Around, This Is Me). Using still images, animation, Super-8, and an experimental score composed and performed by the filmmaker, The Drive North subverts the typical coming-of-age tale with social commentary, humor, and an understated identity-politics slant. This savvy 2003 short seamlessly incorporates an astute sense of self-reflection, rebellion, and family relationships.
