Our Time
Weve been called apathetic. Pampered. A generation without purpose.

But four of us--Adam, Ben, Matt and Wigs --didnt think those labels fit. So we decided to hit the road and find out for ourselves. We rented an RV and began traveling around the country, driving through all lower forty-eight states. Calling ourselves The Young Americans Project, we spoke with a broad cross section of people, aged 18-25. It was a classic American road trip, but we had a purpose--we wanted to meet our generation to try and find out what kids our age care about. Now our generation finally has something to say--in its own voice this time!

If the spine of the story is the journey, the flesh and soul of the story are the people we met and the themes that emerged. The film is a series of profiles and montages, celebrating the beauty of our country and the diversity of its young inhabitants. It's about growing up, the Internet, pop culture, the environment, sex, and the American Dream.

Some of our interviews are planned: We talk to Wes Lippman, an Ivy League marine whose Humvee was blown up by an IED in Iraq. We head to Silicon Valley and meet Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook. We spend a night with Ehren McGhehey, star of Jackass. We go to math class with a Teach For America teacher in South Central L.A. We learn about love and sex from Playboys Ms. October, and a Provo, Utah Mormon virgin. We also discuss our generation with some older Americans, such as journalist Tom Brokaw and civil rights leader Vernon Jordan.

Other interviews are not planned: Along the Ohio River, we stop for gas and meet an eighteen-year-old stripper/prostitute, who yearns for her hometown to have a swimming pool. Along a highway in Kansas, we meet a farmer who tells us that he wishes everyone still owned a gun and settled their own disputes. In Taos, NM, we run into a disenfranchised drug dealer who is struggling to turn over a new leaf.

What is the common thread that links all of these distinct individuals together? Simply put, inspiration. And ultimately it is this inspiration that leads to the conclusion of the film, where our generation finally stands up in the recent historic election to make its voice heard. 'Our Time is a passionate portrayal of a generation, a meditation on coming of age in 21st Century America, and a rallying cry against apathy.
