Rowing for Europe – The Movie

A Turk (Ihsan Banabak) and an Austrian (Gerald Harringer) row down the Danube from Linz right through Southeast Europe all the way to the Black Sea. The space of the unmotorized wooden rowboat is a floating and shaky microcosm. Rowing, cooking, eating, sleeping – everything takes place in just a few square meters. The leisurely journey takes us through heavy storms and dark locks. And to people we would otherwise probably never have met.
