When he finally has a chance at a climb he’s been denied for over a decade, he invites his brother to go with him for the final attempt…. The only problem is his brother is not a climber.

(VANLIFE): DIRTBAGGING IN JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK
Directed by: Meghan Hill – USA – 20 minutes
Synopsis: A short documentary about modern day vanlife: the good, the bad, and everything in between. Filmed out in Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California, I lived out of a van myself and befriended a group of solo vanlife travelers to capture the essence of this dirtbag, rock climbing, live-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle. Through my interviews with multiple solo travelers, this story aims to break common stereotypes about van life, revealing very real challenges and also discovering the true rewards of living on the road.
