In 1929 entrepreneur, traveler, and visionary Wally Byam built the first Airstream travel trailer in the back yard of his California home. Nearly a century later Airstream continues as the oldest travel trailer company in the United States and an iconic brand. For many, the word "Airstream" signifies more than just the image of an aerodynamic silver bullet gliding down the highway; it also evokes the spirit of innovation, adventure, resilience, and dynamism. Byam didn't just create a tool for travel; he created a blueprint for modern nomadic living.

Narrated by Kate Pierson of The B-52s, ALUMINATION, an independently produced, feature-length documentary will undoubtedly stir the age-old desire to pack up and discover what lies beyond the next range of hills.
