DescriptionIn keeping with our principal WEP theme of light we are presenting a session of "Movies @ WEP" featuring a wide array of classic and contemporary movies. Two ambitious filmmakers document their travels on film as they attempt to cross all of the world's deserts on a motorbike in only 900 days. After starting off in Munich, they head first to the Arabian deserts, then to Asia, Australia and over South and North America and finally to Africa, documenting not only their adventures and experiences but each country's unique culture along the way. The two travelled deliberately with no external film team to get an "in your face" closeness. In many countries and in some situations this flexibility and working without a team were necessary requirements to be able to film at all. Countries visited include: Afghanistan, Algeria, Australia, Bolivia, Botswana, Chad, Chile, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Iran, Jordan, Mali, Mauritania, Mongolia, Namibia, Niger, Oman, Peru, Qatar, Tibet, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, United States, Uzbekistan, Yemen. This movie will feature a talk by Michael Martin.
Michael Martin is a specialist in photographing and writing about deserts. Born in Munich in 1963, he had already discovered his love of deserts by the age of seventeen. Over two decades he has undertaken eighty journeys through the deserts of Africa, published 15 books of photographs up to now and held over 1,000 slide presentations. In 1999 he began work on his latest project »Deserts of the Earth. http://www.michael-martin.de/michael_martin/index_en.html
