OFF THE ROAD
A movie directed by Laurence Petit-Jouvet


The German bassist Peter Kowald (1944-2002) was one of the major figures of Free Improvised Music. The film OFF THE ROAD was made on and around his extended tour of the USA in 2000. A journey around America in an old Chevrolet Caprice, the film is a "free improvised road movie" featuring encounters with many of the great names of Free Music, set against the background of "Off The Road" America.
