The Real Motel Life (2013) Trailer
Trailer for the short documentary The Real Motel Life.
The Real Motel Life is a living video portrait of Reno, Nevada. Through the intimate interviews of it's residents, both permanent and temporary, we dive into a transient city that still hasn't bounced back from the recession. Our selection of characters range from Toni, the 'adult entertainer' who works out of her motel room, to Audrey, an ex-Reno cop trying to raise her three sons in a safe environment, and Ron, a friendly motel lifer who enjoys drinking alone in his own room. They all end up living in motels for different reasons, but each maintain a very positive outlook on their future.
