Inspired from a cross country love affair, documentary film maker and fine art gallery owner Mason Hayutin, in conjunction with Peck Slip Studios, set the tone on a much larger phenomenon at the time: the difficult choice to buy green or buy bling.
Throughout the movie, Hayutin asks both from behind the camera and from behind a trucker’s wheel “challenging” questions of many Americans (yes everyday folks and experts in the field). The story comes to a resounding answer on why we are not just in love with our vehicles but how we are actually addicted to the great American love affair of driving at all costs.
The drive to ween consumers off of harmful energy sources is not an independent effort. The community found on Lubie Love is broad – as oil is just one means to a more efficient, productive and safe community.
The original sound track was provided by Los Angeles based singer and song writer, Ryan Saliman. Whispering Wind and Take Flight Girl were two of the tracks that made it onto the film. Ryan and Mason collaborated for the Tribeca Cinema screening and that held at George Washington University where Saliman performed at both venues live.
