In Search of Americans

Sabina Theijs and journalist Eva Kelder drove across the USA to test the Dutch preconceptions and go in search of real Americans. In Search of Americans is a mult media project consisting of mini documentaries and a blog for Dutch documentary channel Holland Doc, photo exhibitions, a book and an event with live music and debate. The book can be ordered here and the short documentaries can be seen on our YouTube channel.
