Better world than never - film in the presence of director and protagonist Dennis Kailing

From Hesse to the wide world: The documentary BETTER WORLD THAN NEVER tells the story of Dennis Kailing, who rounds the world on a bicycle within two years. With the question ’what makes you happy‘, but without any experience in bike travel, the 24-year-old from Gelnhausen (Hesse) jumps into the cold water and just goes off - always heading east. He may be on his own, but he is rarely really alone. Many encounters with interesting, crazy or even "normal" people give him insights that are withheld from a normal tourist.

In addition to breathtaking landscape shots and a certain amount of wit and irony, "Better World than Never" also shows the unpleasant sides of a long bike ride: Never-ending rain in the Andes of South America, sickness between golden pagodas in Myanmar and loneliness in the endless expanses of the Australian outback.

After 43,600 kilometres in 41 countries on 6 continents and orbiting our planet, Dennis, coming from the west, returns to the place from which he set off towards the east a good two years earlier. In the end, he answered his question ’what makes you happy’ also a little bit closer to his question - mostly it is just a very simple, tiny, but completely natural thing. </On Thursday, 13.02. at 8.30 pm the film will be shown in the Harmonie in Sachsenhausen in the presence of the director and protagonists.
