Faces of the Appalachian Trail is a 25 minute video documentary looking at what life along the trail is like, everything that goes into making it possible, and the different personalities that are drawn to the trail. Film student Danny Ruthenberg-Marshall spent five months traveling along the Appalachian Trail by foot and by car, talking with all different categories of people affected by it: thru-hikers, day hikers, trail maintainers, trail administrators, hostel owners, and more. These people came from all walks of life, from the big city and the backwoods, academics and illiterates, rich and poor. The one thing everyone had in common: a love of the Appalachian Trail. [USA]
