Buy an “yellow man”, an American school bus, turn it into a mobile page and embark on an adventurous journey across the United States. This is the dream of every nomadic and free lifestyle people. This was done by a young German couple – filmmaker Felix Stark with his girlfriend, singer Mowgli (you can hear in the trailer) and their Bernice mountain cottage Rudy. Many years ago, they moved to the United States, where they bought an old school bus, turned it into a motor home, and flew from Alaska to Mexico via Canada and the United States. The hilarious scenes and spontaneity excite many hipsters, but the truth is, the story is very shallow and does not bring a deep insight into the local culture.
In this sense, Felix Stark’s previous documentary is the best Pedal the World, In which he will travel 18,000 kilometers in 22 countries around the world. After watching the film, if you are also interested in the couple’s current activities from Expedition Happiness, you can check it out, for example On Instagram.
