Searching for Bill

Searching for Bill

Directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen / Denmark 2012 / 75 min

America is an open book in Jonas Poher Rasmussen's semi-documentary road movie, where reality and fiction sway in a sensual pas de deux down the mythological highways. Bob Mason is a retired gentleman, who leaves the trailer park where he lives with his wife to go to Detroit, where his stolen car has just been found. In the glove compartment is a notebook, which becomes a highly intricate clue in the hunt for the mysterious fraudster and car thief, Bill - and for the meaning of life at the bottom of modern American society. "Searching for Bill" is a Danish take on a hybrid film, where the reality behind the images is enhanced by the contrasting minimal narrative, which is here simply summed up by the title. But it also joins a proud narrative tradition, which is fascinating thanks to its impressionistic depiction of America - not least as seen through the open eyes of a visitor. A sensitive, subtle and human film with its very own cinematic signature.

It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
