TOM ET LE MONDE Movie Poster

Tom et le Monde (translates into Tom and the World) is a 45 minutes long documentary filmed in 2017/18 during a trip from Germany to New Zealand with my high school friend Tom. 

The film is following Tom as he is hitchhiking through Poland, Latvia, Russia, Mongolia, South-Korea, Japan, Thailand, Laos, and New-Zealand, immersing himself into the countries rural zones and their (culinary) culture. The trip is filmed in a very immersive way to show the way people live around the world without any filters. 

Tom soon discovers that one persons routine can be another persons adventure, and that the whole world is as tough, brutal, cold and cruel as full of magic people, colors, tastes and nature to explore.


The full documentary premiered at the What a Trip film festival in Montpellier, France. It was also showed at the Festival du Roc-Castel in Le Caylar, France. Other festivals were planned but cancelled due to the coronavirus spread.
