“California Golde” looks old, but was made in the last year. The Endless Summer vibe of this bike trip to the mountains is fantastic.
The warm fuzz of a technicolour California summer, captured on Super 8 from the saddle of touring bicycles, amidst the bittersweet backdrop of a smoky Sequoia National Forest fire season.
California Golde is a conceptually spun psychedelic yarn of analogue exploration and recreation in the digital age that ultimately disconnects from our hyped-up, phone-obsessed culture.
