Travelling Light

A Road-Documentary by Tamás Wormser

Have you ever dreamt of leaving it all behind?

Travelling Light follows five nomadic artists on their quest to live life as an art form. Let these five wandering idealists be your guides. Get lost in a Spanish cemetery. Venture into a wintry Quebec woodland. Step through the doors of a bordello in Rio. Filmed in eleven countries, Travelling Light is in constant motion – a road-documentary that explores the relationship between creativity and travel. Crossing borders of all types, our roaming protagonists take on the world, providing tonic insight into contemporary life.
Carolyn Gregoir
The McGill Tribune

“Wormser’s captivating film both blurs the distinction between art and life and examines the interplay of escape and attachment.”

Meg Hewings
The Hour

“A testament to our insatiable human desire to chase beauty around every corner.”

Paul Cox

“Using the camera like a paintbrush caressing the canvas of life, Tamás Wormser’s film celebrates man’s ability to be creative and keep searching for beauty…”

Kevin McMahon

“…fascinating and profound, it may be the best depiction of the relationship between artists and their creation that I have ever seen.”

Natalie Daoust

Natalie Daoust has lived in 4 continents since she left her native Quebec, 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

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

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 Montreal.

László Kuli

László 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.

Jimmy Fachetty

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.
