Country Roads - Heartbeat of America
In her 2014 documentary Country Roads Marieke Schroeder embarks on a search for the authentic America; a country at a turning-point. It is a search for the substantial: The morale, the pioneering spirit that holds the nation and it's population together in crisis. We meet the young generation of American singer-songwriters who consider themselves as successors of Country-rebels such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Steve Earle. They despair of themselves and their homeland and at the same time are full of hope, full of faith. Country Music opens up our view of the soul of the American nation and let's US rediscover the land and the music. Artists include Justin Townes Earle, Caitlin Rose, John Carter Cash Jr. & Kevin Costner. DVD bonus material includes a live concert with Justin Townes Earle.
