Michael Glawogger on this documentary: “It’s a film about nothing. I’ll travel once around the world in one year, and I’ll bring home a film. It often happened that on the shoot for a film something unexpected captured my eye and attention but we wouldn’t film it because it didn’t fit that respective project. This film doesn’t have a concept. And there’s no pre-conceived plan. Not having to stick to a subject, I can film everything. I really can’t say what we’ll be coming home with. But I hope it will fulfill the non-existing expectations!”
