Wounds deep, strength deeper

Kickstarter: Operation Route 66

February 18, 2013 Culture By Photo by Kurt and Nick Gerber

Sometimes it’s not about what side of the issue you’re on, but rather remembering the importance of humanity. In a recent cross-country motorcycle trek, the father and son team of Kurt and Nick Gerber of Chicago-based Gerber & Scarpelli Photography interviewed veterans of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for their feature-length documentary, Operation Route 66. Now they’re looking for funding via Kickstarter to cover the costs of editing and post production. The long and beautiful journey not only captures what America’s honorable soldiers have gone through — and continue to go through today — but also highlights the bond between father and son and the American landscape along the famous Route 66. It doesn’t get much better than this.
