April 4, 2018, Palm Springs, CA – The American Documentary Film Festival announces the screening of the latest film by art collective Shia LaBeouf, Nastja Säde Rönkkö, and Luke Turner. #TAKEMEANYWHERE chronicles the 10,000 mile journey by the trio who tweeted their GPS coordinates daily and hitched rides around North America from the strangers who found them. Whoever picked them up could literally take them anywhere. The film is an insightful commentary on the spirit of America and establishing friendship, particularly in this era of political divisiveness.
Shia LaBeouf, Nastja Säde Rönkkö, and Luke Turner have been making highly provocative, Internet driven, interactive art together since 2014, including HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US, a piece of anti-Trump protest art launched on Inauguration Day that quickly became the target of online trolls and far-right extremists. #TAKEMEANYWHERE is arguably their most expansive yet intimate work to date.
