A volta ao mundo quando tinhas 30 anos
Around the World When You Were My Age



Accepting adventure, exploring the world and getting a better idea of it: that was the plan with which Jiro Koretzky embarked on a journey around the globe in the 1970s, as a young man aged thirty. Koretzky, who later became a landscape architect, held on to his numerous photos and notes from these travels like a treasure. A treasure that his daughter has now dug up for her film and transformed into a loving, cinematically reconstructed travel diary. The father – with his tireless yearning to explore places and people, as well as all the minor and major miracles of nature – is omnipresent. For him, and with him, the Portuguese-born director, who now commutes between Lisbon and Tokyo, has used the photographs and present-day Super-8 footage to bring together the past and the present, history and private material, into a complex mosaic of memory, which lives off the magic of fleeting moments as well as off the vivid voice and thoughts of a man who not only experienced the most diverse countries, but also looked deep inside himself throughout the course of his life.
