Storyline

1000 Journals is a film about people whose lives are touched by 1000 traveling journals. These blank journals were released into the world in the summer of 2000, by Someguy, a San Francisco based artist. Some people found a journal, or got it from a friend or stranger. Some signed up on the web and received it in the mail. Some wrote in them, others doodled, pasted in photographs, or added artworks. Some kept them. Some passed them on. There are no rules, and no one really monitors these journals and their movements. And yet, they are connecting tens of thousands of people worldwide, provoking and inspiring them. In September 2003, one of the 1000, number 526, returned to Someguy, filled. What happened to the other 999? This film tells their stories. 1000 Journals shares the experience of their worldwide journeys, and chronicles the self-governed collaboration of thousands of random people who have added to this global "message in a bottle."

what a brilliant doku
20 February 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw 1000 Journals during the Berlin Film Festival at the special Matinée Screening. The opening speech was given by the festivals director himself Dieter Kosslick. Since this film didn't screen in the official competition Kosslicks attendance was special indeed and somewhat of a honor for the films director and producer Andrea Kreuzhage. What fascinated me most were the emotional moments captured during the dozents of interviews of the journal artists around the world. Very intelligent and creative the cutting. Getting this patchwork of interviews and fact materials from 20 something locations all over the world together and producing such exciting to watch 90 Minutes dokumantary shows the professional skills of the films helmer Andrea Kreuzhage. An absolute visual and also creative highlight is the stunning and innovative title artwork. A must see doku not only for the still growing 1000 Journals project community.
