Petey and Ginger - A Testament to the Awesomeness of Mankind

Ada Bligaard Søby, Denmark, 2012

58 min.DK/Documentary

Petey and Ginger are two Americans trying to find a life worth living in the era of failing economy. The film is an intimate portray on how to survive in a dreamland on the verge of going down. »Petey & Ginger« elegantly and honestly documents two very real characters who semi-happily live on the fringes of I-don't-really-give-a-fuckville-and-that's-okay-ish. Filmmaker Ada Bligaard Søby invites us into her ongoing infatuation with the treasure that is the blissfully detached lives of American Losers.
