Art Jones directed this comedy-drama about NYC's Nomad Movement, a trend described in newspaper and magazine articles: New York automobile owners cruise Manhattan at night, driving until dawn as a cool-down from the pressures and stress of their jobs. East Villager El Cid Rivera (Damian Young), age 32 and named after his mom's favorite film, is one such Nomad of the night, cruising under flashing neon in his existential explorations. Intercut with El Cid's quest are the voices of other Nomads, uttering poems expressing their own vehicular visions. Shown at the Dances With Films Festival of the Unknowns (Santa Monica).
