Keep on Rolling. The fantasy of the automobile.

Spain, 2011, 56 min., Spanish


Cars drove us to the dream of the consumer society. Almost 100 years later, this documentary reflects on the social and environmental consequences of the realization of that promise: One car for every individual and budget. This documentary starts with a selection of interviews with experts in different fields like urban design, philosophy or engineering to reflecting on the transformation of our daily surroundings and our driven-by-a-car life. The story is constructed from animations, current images and archive footage from the 1950s.
