the gaze

Crashing America is about strong, complicated gender non-conforming and queer folks who need the love of others like them.


the look


Zak Mulligan, in We, The Animals,   creates a painterly look we dream of for Crashing America. 

 “… a dreamy, nostalgic glaze speckled with lambent light, like the fingerprints of memory.”  — NY Times



the character

River Phoenix in the iconic film  My Own Private Idaho conveys a longing for family and love that is similar to the runaway who seeks connection in our story.


the feels

Much like the Nebraskan cowgirl in our story,

      Heath Ledger's character in Brokeback Mountain has some problems when it comes to love.
