Category: Long Live Life

An auteur documentary by two young Germans shows the only real way to travel around the world. Three and a half years of adventure presented by two charismatic adventurers.

Gwen and Patrick travelled more than 50,000 kilometres together. "We wanted to journey so far east that we had to return home from the west." From car to car they mounted a handheld camera and carefully recorded everything. Their film thus offers a non-stylised and intimate insight into different cultures, as they opened up with local residents before they both set off on their way. An adventurous expedition from Germany all around the world and back again just by hitchhiking and ship, from which the pair return home as a family.
