'Gasoline Rainbow' is a joyous movie for everyone who’s ever sought community and found it waiting for them where they least expect it.


Gasoline Rainbow

Celebrated directorial duo the Ross Brothers (Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets and Contemporary Color) turn their pioneering hybrid lens to the cinematic road trip with GASOLINE RAINBOW. Undoubtedly candid yet deeply loving, this is an expansive portrait of the new generation as told in their own words.

With high school in the rearview, five teenagers from inland Oregon embark on one last adventure. Piling into a van with a busted tail light, their mission takes them to a place they’ve never been — the Pacific coast, five hundred miles away. The plan, in full: “Fuck it.”

Through desert wilderness, industrial backwaters, and city streets, they connect with outsiders on the fringes and discover their lives will be determined by the trails they blaze themselves. These are forgotten kids from a forgotten town, but they have their freedom and they have each other, hurtling toward an unknowable future — and The Party at the End of the World.

A SXSW and Venice Film Festival selection, the mesmerizing GASOLINE RAINBOW depicts a wild and true coming-of-age. With a beating heart and an exuberant spirit, this rhapsodic look at today’s American West reminds us of the timeless joys of community.

"The most accomplished and enjoyable film so far for filmmaking brothers Bill and Turner Ross (the siblings behind Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets and Western).” - Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

“Five teenage friends go on a road trip before adulthood beckons in Gasoline Rainbow, a vivid travelogue whose freewheeling spirit emulates the film’s improvisational making. Veteran directors Bill Ross IV and Turner Ross recruited a cast of non-actors, presenting them with daily scenarios as their characters drove across Oregon in a quest to reach the Pacific Ocean, combining narrative and non-narrative techniques in a similar way to their last picture, 2020’s Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets. The results are often revelatory, offering an unvarnished look at being young, free and unsettled, with the individuals they meet being almost as important as the journey itself." - Tim Grierson, Screen International
