Sag Dem Wind, Dass Ich Bald Komme

A Film by Till Hartmann
and Erik Wittbusch

Synopsis

TELL THE WIND I’LL SOON BE THERE.
“Next year we go into the water,” says Per inside the cabin of his life’s dream: a self-made sailing ship. With the “Bonavera” he wants to sail and proselytise. Bring seagrass insulation to where it is needed, to the Shetlands and through the Northwest Passage into the Bering Sea.
The ship is still unfinished, 14.5 meters up in a hangar made of plastic sheeting. Traveler rail, bow thruster, pivoting keel – the construction sites are no less. And when trying to trim the boat, friendship and marriage get out of balance.

“Tell the Wind I’ll soon be there” is a film about a radical self-realization. The way into isolation – or out to the open sea?
