English | Size: 1.50 GB
Category: Social Sciences
America's desire for freedom and the open road resulted in the construction of thousands of highways during the Eisenhower administration. Through interviews, archival footage and photography, America's interstate highway system is revealed to have shaped every aspect of American life and affected the nation's history for better and for worse.
Conceived of in wartime as a way to quickly move troops and supplies, America's interstate highway system transformed the country and its culture in many unforeseen ways. As neighborhoods and cities were reshaped in the name of urban re-renewal, the fast-food hamburger became a national symbol and the cross-country road trip a rite of passage. This 90-minute documentary tells the story of the world's largest human-engineered structure from drawing board to completion.
