In 1929 Airstream founder Wally Byam built his first travel trailer in the backyard 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 a 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.
Note: Airstream, Inc. was not a financial supporter nor involved in the production of this documentary other than granting access to their film and photographic archives.
