Trailer: Hitchhiking across the Atlantic

This film is the first in the “Running Downwind” series. It tells of the beginning of the journey, starting from Kiel, Germany in May 2010.

Travelling on the catamaran sailboat “Indiana”, the friends Thorsten O. Böhnke and Jan Wolf follow the routes of the old tall ships. Along the way, they visit conservationists who have committed themselves to protecting endangered species. When the journey of the “Indiana” ends on the Canary Islands, Thorsten is faced with a decision: should he end his journey as well or should he search, against all odds, for an opportunity to continue across the Atlantic?
