Art Car: The Movie follows Rebecca Bass and her high school class as they prepare an entry for the Houston Art Car Parade. With almost 300 entrants and more than 300,000 spectators, the Houston Art Car Parade is the biggest in the world, and attracts talent from across the globe.

Against the hectic race to finish on time, Rebecca exposes them to the world of art and the camaraderie of a tight-kint community, offering a glimpse of what life is like “outside the box.”

In exploring why art cars – and self-expression – matter in in an increasingly detached world, co-directors Carlton Ahrens and Ford Gunter traveled the U.S. and the world talking to artists and academics to determine why these visionary artists can’t help but decorate their cars, how that challenges societal norms, and why we should all listen to what they have to say. After all, they are talking to you.
