“There is a New World Somewhere”
A troubled woman is seduced by a stranger who takes her on a road trip through America’s deep south.
Elevator Pitch: “There is a New World Somewhere” is about Sylvia, a troubled woman, who comes back to her Texas hometown
for a friend’s wedding. On the night before, she meets Esteban, a
mysterious drifter. He’s about to go on a roadtrip through the Deep
South and dares her to come along. At dawn, the strangers speed off into
the unknown. Now that’s just the beginning. The film unravels into an
intimate portrayal of two souls who have lost direction in life, both
trying to fight self-doubt and the doubt of others. Like “Y Tu Mama
Tambien” or “Paris, TX?” Then you’ll fall in love with “There is a New World Somewhere.”

About the Production: “There is a New World Somewhere” is a coming-of-age story of a woman who has lost her way. I feel as
close to our heroine as I’ll ever be. Abundant in passion but lacking in
ways to manifest it, this story put sharp focus on my own fears. In
this age where immediacy pervades our lives, it’s hard to find the time
to let inspiration in. To promote our campaign, we’re collaborating with
adventure bloggers by taking roadtrips together and publishing them to
encourage others to be more adventurous. We want to connect with our
generation through our film and inspire people along the way.
