Synopsis

"My home with furniture crammed in four small panniers. A positive and uplifting thought of how little is needed to live."

"Never arrive, ever" is a story about Piotr Strzeżysz's life - a modern nomad who has been wandering the world on his bicycle for more than 20 years. Solitary nights in uninhabited lands, interacting with ghosts, countless encounters with "others", apprehension on the mother’s part, mountains, cats and unrelenting desire for not reaching the destination point - all this comprises a fascinating journey having its beginnings, as indicated by the protagonist, at the very moment of his birth.

Although storytelling through moving pictures was part of my professional career from the very beginning, it became my main occupation only a few years ago. In 2013 I quit my job in interactive media industry and went to South America to travel and master my video editing / cinematography skills. After returning I started freelancing and have gained some experience in reportage, documentary, corporate videos and short films. I finally decided to try my hand at documentary directing and this is how “Never arrive, ever” came alive.
