The Boomerang

Directed by Tiziano Niero

Documentary | 15 minutes | United States | 2019 | English | SPECIAL SCREENING

Is it practical to ride an Italian superbike from Amsterdam to Cape Town? Hardly. But if you have the mechanical know-how to improvise repairs on a Ducati 998 in the middle of the desert, the only thing holding you back from a continent-crossing adventure is the will to start one—at least according to Peter Muurman. He has some solid supporting evidence though, seeing as he’s taken his 998 through 51 countries and racked up nearly 100,000 km in the process. It takes a certain outlook on life to take on journeys of this scale, and if you complete them, you’ll never see the world the same way again.

Director Bio

Tiziano was born in Italy but studied and lived in London for many years before moving to Los Angeles in 2012. In between, he traveled and filmed around the globe, from walking through the desolate streets of Pripyat, inside the Chernobyl exclusion zone to kissing a wild leopard in Namibia and filming a classic car race from Beijing, China to Paris, France. He often collaborates with Petrolicious as chief video editor and series filmmaker and with Donut Media. He lives in West Hollywood with his three cats and four motorcycles.
