DIRECTED BY TANNER MATTHEWS
COLIN PARKER STEPHENS
MAGGIE MAE CLEARY
Dylan is a transient who escapes reality with an opiate addiction. He buys drugs. He uses. He rides out of town on an existential train with an imaginary friend. These are the habits of a lonely man without ambition, without any hope, without any dreams.
He talks about the emptiness of life with his illusory friend, Phoenix and the only happiness that he can find is in this altered state. And it is in this perfect escape that another joins the ride.
Des is a small town drifter who is equally lost in this parallel universe, but unlike Dylan she is searching for something. Neither of them expected that what they were missing, was within each other.
The American Dreamless is Tanner Matthews’ directorial debut and the first film to be shot in all fifty US states. It is about the journey. It is about the adventure. It is about life.
