Nathalie Daoust has lived in 4 continents since she left her native Québec, as her inspiration comes from culture shock. “I want to show things that people can’t see.” Femininity and sexuality are recurring themes in her photographs. We walk with her from the streets of New York to the alleys of Brazil’s City of God.

Christina Hagmann is a Swiss-Bulgarian artist, who has sailed the seven seas. “Home is the body. It’s the only luxury we have.” Her “body-extension-art”, balloon-like suits and capsules, have been part of major travelling exhibitions. For her, the ultimate art form is the relationship with others. We follow her from a port on the Saint-Lawrence to the banks of the Rhine.

Lundo Chango the lead-man of La Chango Family, is a French-born troubadour musician, who travels with his singer wife and two children. “Family became a wandering refuge.” With his songs, Lundo has found a key to open hearts on his path. At the dawn of his group’s success, Lundo moves away from it all to start all over again. We tour with them from the streets of La Rochelle to the concert halls of Montréal.
Wandering is the way Jimmy Fachetty has survived the brutality of his childhood. Jimmy is a jeweler, a writer, a sculptor, an actor, a stuntman and more. A Ketchua Indian, he has been on his own since age 4. “I would not say I am a traveller, but an escaper, a searcher.” Jimmy cannot stay in one place for long. We accompany him from Montréal to Barcelona and Kobe, where he’s accepting the birth of his first child.
Lázló Kuli a Hungarian-born painter, is a travelling hermit. “When you enter the creative mind, it doesn’t have borders, you somehow experience limitlessness.” In the winter mountains of Québec, he lives in a small tent made from garbage bags. We follow him on his spiritual quest through the remnants of his communist era hometown, back to nature.
