Cast and credits
This is an intimate portrait of the changes a sheltered man experiences after encountering numerous cultures and beliefs.
A naive dreamer, fearing stagnation and worried about getting tangled up in a boring job out of university, attempts the greatest challenge he can think of: traveling around the world on a motorcycle - alone and without money. Instead of wasting precious time saving up for the trip, he hastily decides to make money along the way by picking up random jobs – an idea that would make his journey much more challenging and dangerous than he intended. Out of the hardship he encounters trying to survive comes a story of true freedom and global understanding.
What makes this film unique is the story and the central character. The story taps into current feelings of unrest, disillusionment and disconnection felt by whole generations of young people throughout the western world. It’s about having the courage to follow your instincts, no matter how crazy they seem, and what you can accomplish when you stop trying to control things and let go of your fears.
Adventure stories such as this one are important to us: there’s something primal about it, we never get tired of them. However, the amount of footage accumulated on this adventure and the liberty under which it was taken is unprecedented.
The adventure side is, however, only the surface of the story, since it is the framework and catalyst for the significant transitions Daniel experienced on the trip, including self- discovery, spirituality and peacefulness. The audience will see a transition in Daniel through his eyes.
Is bigger always better? When it comes to breasts and lips, the answer has been yes -- with thousands of women going under the knife each year in search of augmented features. In recent years, the focus has shifted from breasts downwards, towards other ass-ets. In fact, in 2013, the number of butt augmentations increased by 58%.
The film doesn't just point the finger at women and the media, as men have played an equally important role. From Sir Mix-a-Lot, whose 1992 hit "Baby Got Back," sensationalized round posteriors "I like big butts and I cannot lie" to new artists like 2Chainz "She got a big butts so I call her big booty", it is men who actively pursue women with this new fetishized feature.
So who is to blame -- the media? Men? Women? "Bottoms Up" offers different perspectives on this new issue. Jam-packed with commentary from plastic surgeons, women who desperately long for larger ones, and men who want a little more than a handful, the film takes a look at booties from every angle.
