“Marmara Ring” – our first cycling expedition as a part of just created project. In 75 days, we overcame by bikes 3300 km from Ukraine to Turkey through Romania and Bulgaria came around Marmara Sea in the end. By racing bicycles throw mountain villages, large backpacks instead of bike bags, simple camera to make a «brilliant» film – we had less experience, only a small money, but what an excitement we had!

That time for the first time, we tried to find singing people in all the places we were travelling by and to record their songs – this is one of the core tasks of “Two-wheeled Chronicles” project. To our great surprise, the film about travelling has become the winner of all the film festivals in which it participated:

  • “The best international film” –”Yushut” festival (Kazan, 2012)
  • “Audience Choice Award” and 2nd place in “Tourism” nomination – «Hundred Roads» festival (Saint Petersburg, 2012)
