‘the long way’ is a short documentary portrait of american artist evan hecox, captured by production company dress code among native landscapes. the filming is set in the desolate back roads of new mexico and south colorado where hecox explores the world that inhabits his artworks.

during the shooting, evan hecox and the dress code team have begun meandering past several desertic lands and towns — each depicting unique tribal and cultural layers. from the taos earthships, rio grande gorge, to lonesome church ruins and american actor dennis hopper’s grave, the artist records striking his impressions of architecture, colors and textures that are then re-interpreted in his illustrations.
