These trailers give you a taste of what's waiting for you in our "Running Downwind" film series.
Hitchhiking across the Atlantic. Travelling on the catamaran sailboat “Indiana”, the friends Thorsten 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?
The Wild Windwards. Thorsten Böhnke and Laura Winter explore the southeastern Caribbean on their “new” 1984 New Zealand-built sailboat, "Corinthian". They point their bow into winds of up to 50 knots and encounter the wild inhabitants and spectacular nature of the Windward Islands along the way. They get up close and personal with nesting leatherback turtles and curious sperm whales, hike through mountainous cloud forests and visit a boiling lake.
In our short films, we share the places we visit and animals and people we meet during our journey.
