Far. The Story of a Journey Around the World

A hitchhike of 50,000 km – crossing the ocean by ship, and having a baby in Mexico. FAR. THE STORY OF A JOURNEY AROUND THE WORLD is a colourful, authentic film that follows the extraordinary journey of a young couple who set off into the east, to return from the west three and a half years later with a new, third member to their family. On a small budget and without taking any planes, they explore the world with natural curiosity and buoyant spontaneity.

Docutainment, 127 minutes, Multilingual w/English Subtitles, Germany 2017
A film by Patrick Allgaier and Gwendolin Weisser

Embark on an unforgettable journey to China, Pakistan, India and beyond with a young couple travelling the world on an epic 50,000 km hitchhike. Travelling for over three years with hardly any money, and refusing to take any planes, the charismatic duo makes their way through beautiful landscapes, forests and cities, striking up unexpected friendships with locals along the way. A testament to exploration and the encounters that emerge when you forget about itineraries and Google Maps, this buoyant European revelation invites you to let go and let yourself get lost in the world.
