The title refers to the distance covered in the legendary off-road Dakar Rally, a route noted Austrian docu-maker Nikolaus Geyrhalter follows once the vehicles have all disappeared. The film’s intent is not to reflect on the race, but rather, to create a visual meditation about human migration, in which rich Europeans drive south at great speed for sport and poor Africans travel north by foot and rowboat for a livelihood.
