The Royal Road
|A tremendous cinematic pretext for 70 solid minutes of 16mm urban landscape cinematography, The Royal Road blends the fictional first-person tale of a starstruck butch lesbian with a fascinating series of nonfiction tangents about the Spanish colonial history, politics and geography of the Golden State, via an exploration of California’s El Camino Real, the original trail connecting the territory’s missions, presidios and pueblos during the era of Spanish-Mexican rule.
Jenni Olson is an experimental documentary filmmaker with a unique storytelling style incorporating 16mm urban landscapes and lyrical voiceover. Her most recent films include 575 Castro St. and The Joy of Life — both of which world premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (in 2009 and 2005 respectively).
