ALONG FOR THE RIDE explores the highs, lows and ultimately - the phoenix-like ascension of iconic Hollywood maverick Dennis Hopper - all as seen through the eyes of his mysterious longtime 'right-hand man'- Satya de la Manitou. Filmmaker NICK EBELING chronicles the unlikely duo's incredible 40+ year journey, an enduring and intense brotherhood, as intimately complex as Hopper's own legendary career. De la Manitou re-examines his dedication to his friend's idiosyncratic and uncompromising genius, reminiscing with a fascinating cast of characters -- Hopper's co-conspirators, family and friends - all those that were also - unwittingly or willingly - ALONG FOR THE RIDE. The result...is one hell of a trip. Original Score by Gemma Thompson of Savages. Along for the Ride also features rare and unseen photos and vintage film.
