JNC THEATER: Bleed blue after watching Between the Lines, the documentary about global Subaru culture

Two independent filmmakers have created an amazingly crafted and moving documentary about their most cherished marque. Between the Lines by Jan Lim and Jose Valdez delves deep into the world of Subaru fandom, and goes beyond the technical aspects of the cars themselves. It explores the many facets of Subaru culture, from rally racers to campers to show-goers. 

Lim and Valdez weave together an unprecedented diary of events, including Fuji Heavy holy grounds like the Subaru of America Attic, Dirtfish Rally School, the Global Rallycross Championships, SEMA, a Subaru-sponsored dog adoption day, and the STI headquarters in Japan. There’s coverage of Subaru events around the country and the 10th anniversary of the 22B Owners Club in Japan, as well as stories about individual owners.

The result is a love letter to the Subaru community. The quality of camerawork and editing is astounding for an independent production as well. Even if you don’t own a Subaru, it’s worth watching. By the end, you may wish you did.
