The Ross Brothers are back with their latest hybrid documentary-fictional film, featuring a Gen-Z cast on a road trip at the end of the world. Inspired in part by Easy Rider, this is a road trip movie guided by the restless spirit of youth.

ON SCREEN: Gasoline Rainbow

2024. Directed by Bill Ross IV and Turner Ross. Runtime: 110 minutes.
Celebrated directorial duo the Ross Brothers (Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets and Contemporary Color) turn their pioneering hybrid lens to the cinematic road trip with Gasoline Rainbow. Undoubtedly candid yet deeply loving, this is an expansive portrait of the new generation as told in their own words.

With high school in the rearview, five teenagers from inland Oregon embark on one last adventure. Piling into a van with a busted tail light, their mission takes them to a place they’ve never been — the Pacific coast, five hundred miles away. The plan, in full: “Fuck it.”

Through desert wilderness, industrial backwaters, and city streets, they connect with outsiders on the fringes and discover their lives will be determined by the trails they blaze themselves. These are forgotten kids from a forgotten town, but they have their freedom and they have each other, hurtling toward an unknowable future — and The Party at the End of the World.

A SXSW and Venice Film Festival selection, the mesmerizing Gasoline Rainbow depicts a wild and true coming-of-age. With a beating heart and an exuberant spirit, this rhapsodic look at today’s American West reminds us of the timeless joys of community.


THE ROSS BROTHERS are an American filmmaking team whose work has brought them renown as some of the most innovative independent filmmakers working today — pushing the art of presenting uninhibited portraits of people and places with all the complicated, humanistic, and lyrical truth that that entails. Their work has been featured at museums and festivals throughout the world, including the Berlinale and Sundance, where they premiered Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets in 2020, and received a Special Jury Prize for Western in 2015. They have been the recipients of an Independent Spirit Award as well as accolades from CPH:DOX, Full Frame, and South by Southwest.

According to Metacritic they are tied with Paul Thomas Anderson as the 6th best reviewed filmmakers of the 21st century. In 2023, their body of work was celebrated with a retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. They are members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences.
