” No GPS, no Strava, no smartphone, no device if only an old Nokia burner. No Macbook in the bag but a map book that rarely makes it out. After ten years on the streets, Karadama a.k.a. Karl Heinz Pohl knows the client list and all their locations well enough. He knows enough shortcuts and safe ways to make his day smooth rolling, dodging delays, anticipating complications, chasing any trouble out of his way. You’ll rarely see him hammer but when he does it’s with this emergency motto in his head “it had to be done yesterday”, that kind of speed.”
Ryan Le Garrec.
” This Breton film director, born in London, has a gift for telling the stories of people who craft their lives and work with passion and who reflect on their heritage. Perhaps he is, in this way, much like the characters he reveals. His style is intimate and poetic, magnifying even the simplest details of those he films.”
