Docuseries by Provo filmmaker highlights lifelong biker

Created by Brad Barber, a longtime bike rider and university professor in Provo, UT.

What is it that ties us to the state where we currently live and adopt it as the one we’re “from”? How does living in our states define us? States of America is a series of short documentaries–one from each of our 50 states–that ask these questions by featuring everyday people as diverse as the landscape in the places they call home. This is a story of Rhode Island.

Jack is a native of Rhode Island and has called the Ocean State his home for all 82 years of his life. He is a volunteer meal deliverer for Meals on Wheels and a tour guide with the Providence Preservation Society. Jack believes that the people you spend your life with have the greatest potential to inspire you.

*States of America is created and produced by Brad Barber
*Rhode Island is directed and shot by Brad Barber, edited by Kelton Davis, with music by Micah Dahl Anderson. Title design by Brian Turley and Mark T. Lewis.
