DER JUNGE MUSS VON DER STRASSE

The latest from Ad Lips Productions has all the feels… Watch as Marc Maurer reconciles his dream of circling the globe by bicycle.

Back in the days I always thought I need to ride as many kilometers

A film about inclusion, identity, and hand-drawn heroes. If you can’t find a hero, create your own; for mountain biker, skier and artist Brooklyn Bell, that hand-drawn hero was a comic character named Ruby J. Using Ruby as a role model, Brooklyn set out to “live like her, breathe like her, be unapologetically black like her,” finding her own identity in a mix of dirt, snow, art and inclusion.
