Travelling Light - Artists on the Move follows five nomadic artists on their quest to live life as an art form. Filmed in 11 countries, this road-documentary explores the relationship between creativity and travel. Crossing borders of all types, our roaming protagonists take on the world, providing tonic insight into contemporary life.

Run through the back lanes of a traditional Japanese town, end up in a European market square. Get lost in a Spanish cemetery, find yourself waist-deep in snow in a Québec woodland. Step into a bordello in Rio, linger along a Dutch canal, cycle through time and space across three continents.

Our five protagonists are active idealists, fully devoted to their art, who share a need to feel life's intensity at its fullest. Travelling Light tags along as they wander and search, question and find, arrive and depart--documenting how their beliefs shape their lives, and how their lives shape their art.

We follow photographer Nathalie Daoust from the streets of New York to the alleys of Brazil's City of God. We track Christina Hagmann, sailor and artist, from a port on the St-Lawrence River to the banks of the Rhine. We wander with Laszlo Kuli, painter and hermit, on a spiritual quest to his communist era hometown. We tour with Lundo from the medieval streets of La Rochelle to the concert halls of Montréal. We run with Jimmy Fachetty as he escapes Montréal to Barcelona and then on to Kobe.

Crossing borders of all types, our roaming protagonists take on the world, living life as an art form and providing tonic insight into contemporary society.

Move with them through landscapes and seascapes, mindscapes and escapes. See the world through new eyes. Leave it all behind--and take time to travel light.
