Dir. Alexandra Kandy Longuet - 2018 - Belgium/USA - Language: English - Subtitles available: French
Last refuge for the forgotten of the American dream, in the USA the motel is home to a whole population of left behind, drifting humans who, from crisis to crisis - economic and personal - have been dispossessed of all. There are those who have lost everything. There are those who have left everything. Those who have forgotten everything. Those who still dream. Drawn in by daily survival, they all try to rebuild their life in this precarious nest, at the edge of the world.
"This is a world of broken neon signs with names like “Palace Inn” or “Villa Motel”, deserted water towers, torn fences, rusty pipes and scaffolding, mouldy bathrooms, and discarded supermarket carts, scattered along a highway surrounded by dry, desert-like terrain."
