A Free Life

documentary, 19’14”

Going away for three years. Three years and a day to be precise. Away from friends, family and home. An ancient tradition that only a handful of tradesmen still follow today; the journeyman’s travel. We take to the road to accompany travelling apprentices in different phases of their journey and are witnesses to a life that in this modern day and age, hardly anyone feels brave enough to lead.
