Autor & Director & Producer – 5 × 45 min. documentary series

The “Carretera Panamericana” connects Alaska with Tierra del Fuego. It runs from the northern extremity of North America to the most southerly tip of the inhabitable world – beyond this, there’s only water and ice. The “Pan-American Highway” is the north-south axis of the Americas. It passes through 17 countries and winds its way through four climate zones and almost all the vegetation zones of the earth. With a length of 35,000 kilometers, this is a highway of superlatives. The world’s longest road leads through the history and culture of the American continent, passing along political crisis regions and natural landscapes of indescribable beauty. A highway of extremes “right from the top to the very bottom”. It is the paragon of freedom and adventure – Vamos!

Wir machten uns auf den Weg: 35.000 Kilometer, vom äußersten Norden Amerikas zur südlichsten Stadt der Welt: Ushuaia. Sieben Monate Drehreise auf einer der längsten Strassen der Welt, die Panamericana.
