“A Different Path” follows Richard Dyksterhuis (Seattle) and Michael Johnson (Toronto), along with supporting characters, as they struggle to make their way through the modern automobile-centric urban environment. Each character uses ingenuity and humor to try and solve their modern mobility dilemma. The film is an artistic and poetic treatment of personal struggle and environmental concern over livable cities. Animation, carefully crafted cinematography, and original music composed by the director and performed with Michael Johnson, contribute to this documentary’s distinctive style from the director of "Hybrid" (Independent Spirit Award – 2001).
