Every Day is a Journey is a Synergistic Cinema series, a story with no predetermined arc told in six chapters, written and directed by six distinct Seattle-area filmmakers. This innovative storytelling technique required each writer/director team to use the characters and story threads introduced by the previous chapter to continue the story. Before each director could begin work on his own chapter, all of the previous chapters had already screened for audiences at the RAWSTOCK Film Festival, which has showcased boundary-pushing films for the last ten years. EDIAJ begins as the story of small time grifters and yoga enthusiasts, then quickly accelerates into a darkly comedic crime-drama involving numerous kidnappings and unexpected pathos. The result is a 99-minute feature film with a narrative as unpredictable as life itself.
