It takes the Paris Dakar Rally 14 days to reach the finish line. Nikolaus Geyrhalter estimates he needs around four months to go the same distance – an experience of slowness in a fast world. The multifaceted face of the real Africa, which is literally forced to the side of the road by the Paris Dakar media spectacle, unfolds over @i:7915 KM:i@ in the form of portraits and encounters with the men, women and children that Nikolaus Geyrhalter meets on his journey. A film that talks less about travelling and more about stopping, about lingering with your eyes, your ears and a lot of time.
