A Volta ao Mundo Quando Tinhas 30 Anos

Aya Koretzky Portugal, 2018

I.Camera's rating of the film Around the World When You Were My Age

My own memories of travel are the strongest I'll ever have, which is probably also the case for Aya's gentle, meditative globetrotting father. A rare documentary looking at a Japanese man's exploration of the Occident (rather than the other way around), this film emphasises the long term joy gained from travel, not tourism, esp. as age, commitments, immobility and (now) escalating travel bans gradually creep upon us.
