CANDY MOULTON. In Pursuit of a Dream

CANDY MOULTON. In Pursuit of a Dream. Boston Production Inc., for the Oregon-California Trail Association. DVD, 84 minutes, $20, octa-trails.org.

During the summer of 2008, twenty-four teenagers left their homes in the city, exchanged their shorts and sandals for long dresses and pioneer pants, and set off on a two-week journey on the Oregon and California Trails traveling by wagon train in Wyoming and Oregon. Like the 19th Century pioneers they were in pursuit of a dream. They thought they’d be learning about history. They wound up learning about themselves. Directed by Bob Noll. Written and Produced by Candy Moulton.
