Six Degrees


“Six degrees of separation” is the theory of how everybody is connected, in six steps or less. Where can a journey through the six degrees take you, if you let random encounters decide your path?
This observing documentary puts the theory to the test, and brings you along on a journey through the States like you have never experienced before.

The filmmakers hit the American highway with the idea of a documentary where the camera itself does the travelling, not a host or a main character. We follow one character until they cross paths with a new character, and in this way the film travels from New York in the east to Los Angeles in the west, via the swampland in the south. We get a unique peek into American culture and working class, with a intimate and sensitive approach, covered with the everyday philosophy: who are all the people surrounding us, and where can a random encounter lead us?
