If you’re stuck for something to watch this evening, try watching Nobodies! Heroes! The Zenga Bros have spend the last 20 years using the camera as a tool to create their own wonderful world. Check out this weeks Friday Expedition for proof.
In this film they meet some of their heroes and produce some amazing things.
A refreshing and inspirational look at the world.
“A refreshingly earnest and comedic documentary that tells the story of a family who have dedicated the last 20 years of their lives to sharing their vision of wild creativity through interactive film projects.
Disheartened that the transformative power of the camera has been eclipsed by screen scrolling, they embark on a final journey to meet their heroes and bring their own creative visions to life.
A MOVIE MANIFESTO
After twenty years of non-stop adventure filmmaking, the Zenga Bros are considering giving it all up. They wonder if their message of wild creativity is having any impact on our screen addicted world. Before they pack it in, they’re setting out on one last mission.
Like they’ve always done, they load up their handmade tall bikes with all the gear needed to survive and document their adventures. This time, they’ve set out to meet their heroes: the unknown creators, artists and builders who inspired them when they first got started.
You’ll get a rare glimpse into the wildly creative environment they were raised in, from a big family in a small rural town, to how a video camera changed their lives and helped them spark a creative revolution in their community.
This journey brings them face to face with their heroes: independent publisher and Hobbit-hole dweller Dan Price, visionary builder Dan Phillips, who designs and builds dream homes out of reclaimed materials, to whimsicalist Steven M. Johnson, inventor and illustrator whose creative output is the definition of not-stuck.
With Nobodies! Heroes!, the Zenga Bros personal journey crescendos into an invigorating movie manifesto that leaps off the screen in surprising directions.
A rousing call to action to free the wild creativity that’s within you.”
