Hanson Hosein and his wife Heather Hughes, both stand alone video journalists, have produced a charming and fascinating look at what’s going on in cities and towns across the country. Independent America: The Two-Lane Search for Mom & Pop is today’s HotSpot. It’s a great little film which, of course, comes with its own web site where you can buy the DVD and learn more about the couple and their roadtrip. Or you can also hop on over to Amazon and snag a copy.
If you’ve got any interest in the fight between small retail and “Big Box” chains – or just a love of old, two-lane highways and a sense of adventure – this is an hour well-spent.
