Road Trip Time Machine

Did the minivan kill the station wagon? Do you even know what a “station wagon” is? Those of us who are old enough to have owned one will enjoy a trip down memory lane with film makers Sam Smartt and Christopher Zaluski. Their full-length documentary Wagonmasters and their website of the same name explore the sociocultural impact of the pre-minivan/SUV/CUV car culture in North America.

The film tells the story of the quintessential American car and its place in the histories of the U.S. and Canada. Take a road trip and discover the archetype that managed to convey utility, escape and fun to generations of North Americans.
