Storyline

This documentary film explores the revival of manual work through the passion of motorcycle enthusiasts who have found their way to a happy life. Shot in 16mm in California, Utah, Indonesia, Spain, Scotland and France, we have spent time with mechanics and custom shop founders trying to understand the difference between manual work and intellectual work. The unique satisfaction that result from doing something tangible, the sense of time, the relation between the form and the function, the joy of riding in a beautiful landscape and the community and friendship that motorcycle creates.

On the edge of passion
3 April 2015 | by jerdegerSee all my reviews

I found it very beautiful and very touching. They managed to convey a true breath of freedom. We feel good the different characters, their fragility and their humility in relation to what they do. The challenge to dedicate their life to passion, tighten all the other issues around a new center, which makes the rest derisory. It is also a beautiful object, the images are really nice, it's a kind of temporal paradox between contemporary aspect of the context and necessarily the 70's look given by the rendering of 16mm. Mixing is really very very well done. Music is also a real character of the film, you feel strong emotion related to the choice of music throughout the narrative. In short bravo, it's a very nice movie, I hope it will have a beautiful life and that it will be seen by many.
