The motto is: do it. Go for it completely: a plan, a journey, a film. Inspired, deliberately uninhibited. Joost Conijn sets up a gate in the desert that opens automatically. Takes off in a plane that he built himself. Travels through Russia in a wood-powered car made of wood, all the way to the Chernobyl zone. Films the neighbourhood kids for a year, capturing their life on the fringes of society. Improves his plane and then crashes it. Cycles through the Moroccan Rif Mountains with two friends; they use their hands to communicate with one another about what’s going on in the world. He moves through life with an independent attitude and plays the big game of art. With bravura, and yet totally straight. back
