River to River: Iowa’s Forgotten Highway 6 guides viewers on a nostalgic classic car journey through yesterday’s soda shops, filling stations, general stores, drive-ins, historic sites and roadside attractions that line Iowa’s U.S. Highway 6. Iowa’s portion of the transcontinental Route 6 has a past that includes Bonnie and Clyde, Jesse James, Nancy Drew, Jack Kerouac, the Great Race Across Iowa, and others.
The film, which has been delighting capacity crowds at its showings in towns along Route 6, was inspired by the research and photography of Dave Darby, Executive Director of the Iowa Division of the Route 6 Tourist Association.
An IndieGoGo fundraising campaign is underway to raise funds for film distribution. Contributors can add their name to the credits and receive other perks by visiting http://igg.me/at/highway6movie.
