Project

Tro Fañch

An overambitious cycle dealer is hurled forward into a bicycle trip in Brittany and rediscovers the beauties of the world that surrounds him.
Tro Fañch is a micro road-movie on a bike. It is based on an idea: the possible rediscovery of wonder. The movie will be in stereoscopic 3D in Brittany and will explore amazement as a poetic experience.
