SOLAR VOYAGE

This is a film about Mirek Lech, a visionary, inventor, extreme traveller and a champion of renewable energy sources’. The portrait of an unconventional protagonist takes on an unconventional form: a parody of a documentary essay with elements of friendly humour. From Pcim to Slovakia, from Slovakia to Greece and from there straight to Africa, where this man, not so young anymore, wants to find a job in a solar power plant and a future wife. Solar energy and a warm narrative are two indispensable elements of this imaginative study of Mirek Lech.
