Light the fire (German extended version)

A tribute to the bicycle and the associated freedom, to nature and that man has to purify his connection to the earth.

The film documents my trip to the Dutch north coast back in summer 2016, with all wear and tear in wind and weather and all sorrow and joy in the environment and nature. It is a portrait of a time in a world characterized by technology and progress in which human beings have almost forgotten their origins and where their life´s journey take them.
Slow travelling as its best.
