This short film is inspired by a 3300 km bicycle trip I made between Montreal and New Orleans. I want to express the contrast I experienced between change and repetition while I pedalled day in, and day out for three weeks.
It's difficult to describe the feel of a bike trip. On one hand it is very repetitive, the landscape changes slowly and pedaling becomes like a reflex, you don't need to think about it.
On the other hand, each day is different because you are very influenced by your surroundings and nature.
