Gasoline Rainbow is driving across to MUBI shortly

MUBI, the global streaming service, film distributor, and production company, has released today the new official trailer and artwork, as well as the exclusive streaming date for MUBI Production Gasoline Rainbow, the latest film from the celebrated directorial duo the Ross Brothers (Bloody Nose Empty Pockets, Contemporary Color). The Ross Brothers have turned their pioneering hybrid approach to the cinematic road trip with an undoubtedly candid, yet deeply loving portrait of the new generation as told in their own words.

The film premiered at Venice Film Festival 2023 followed by its US premiere at SXSW. It will premiere exclusively on MUBI in the UK and Ireland on 31 May 2024.

With high school in the rearview, five teenagers from inland Oregon embark on one last adventure. Piling into a van with a busted tail light, their mission takes them to a place they’ve never been — the Pacific coast, five hundred miles away. The plan, in full: “F**k it.”

Through desert wilderness, industrial backwaters, and city streets, they connect with outsiders on the fringes and discover their lives will be determined by the trails they blaze themselves. These are forgotten kids from a forgotten town, but they have their freedom and they have each other, hurtling toward an unknowable future — and The Party at the End of the World.

GASOLINE RAINBOW depicts a wild and true coming-of-age story. With a beating heart and an irrepressible spirit, this rhapsodic look at today’s American West reminds us of the timeless joys of community.

THE ROSS BROTHERS are an American filmmaking team whose work has brought them renown as some of the most innovative independent filmmakers working today – pushing the art of presenting uninhibited portraits of people and places with all the complicated, humanistic, and lyrical truth that entails. Their work has been featured at museums and festivals throughout the world, including the Berlinale and Sundance (where they premiered Bloody Nose Empty Pockets in 2020), and which received a Special Jury Prize for Western in 2015. They have been the recipients of an Independent Spirit Award as well as accolades from CPH:DOX, Full Frame, and SXSW.

According to Metacritic, they are tied with Paul Thomas Anderson as the 6th best-reviewed filmmakers of the 21st century. In 2023, their body of work was celebrated with a retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. They are members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences.
