Introduction

17mins, Director: Jimmy Purtill, Germany, NZ Premiere, Subtitles: No

Two cyclists ride across South America, in the Ruta Lagunas in the South West Bolivia. Facing strong winds, high altitude, freezing temperatures and a bumpy sandy track, they try to reach the Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt plain. Their route leads them through a breathtaking high-altitude landscape dotted with colourful salt-lakes, windswept rock formations and unique wildlife.
