A high speed road trip 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/filmmaker 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; as well as Patti Smith, Giorgio Moroder, Cat Power, Thurston Moore, Mavis Staples 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. Preceded by the new animated short from Bill Plympton, “The Loneliest Stoplight,” narrated by Patton Oswalt.
