Continuing our exploration of the 2021 annual theme “Travel and Leisure,” Docomomo US presents ALUMINATION, the Airstream documentary, as part of our Mission for Modernism series. This is a private, preview screening offered in advance of its world premiere this September at Freep Film Festival in Detroit. The screening will be followed by a moderated Q&A with filmmaker Eric Bricker on Sunday, August 22nd at 7:00 p.m. ET.

NOTE: This film was 100% independently produced. Airstream, Inc. was not a financial supporter nor involved in the production of this documentary other than granting access to their film and photographic archives.

In 1929, Airstream founder Wally Byam built his first travel trailer in the backyard of his California home. Today, Airstream signifies more than memories of a “silver bullet” gliding down the highway; it evokes the spirit of innovation, resilience and adventure.

Narrated by Kate Pierson (The B-52s), this documentary feature will undoubtedly stir the age-old desire to pack up and discover what lies beyond the next range of hills.
