Follow the Money
Director: John Hardwick/Ben Unwin/Steve Boggan
Country: UK & USA
Running Time: 85′
Seemingly an act of boisterous lunacy, Follow The Money sees Hackney filmmakers Steve Boggan, John Hardwick and Ben Unwin follow a $10 bill across the USA. But what initially seems like a mad endeavour soon emerges as a patchwork portrait of modern America. Crisscrossing the country over the course of 30 days, and recording their encounters with the people they meet along the way, the filmmakers meet an extraordinary range of characters, from a French trans woman making a new life for herself to the busker who has rediscovered his love for life following a near-death experience. Funny, humane and often extremely moving, Follow The Money is a deeply humane encounter with America at a vital time.
