Rowing for Europe

 
A Turk and an Austrian row down the Danube from Linz right through Southeast Europe all the way to the Black Sea. The space of the unmotorized wooden rowboat is a floating and shaky microcosm. Rowing, cooking, eating, sleeping – everything takes place in just a few square meters. The leisurely journey takes Gerald Harringer and Ihsan Banabak through heavy storms and dark locks. And to people they would otherwise probably never have met.
