Since 1992, when he was diagnosed as being afflicted with multiple sclerosis, Martin Bruch has been moving along with the help of mechanical appliances. At first he used a scooter, now, as this is no longer possible, he depends mainly on a handbike. From 12/2001 to 12/2002 he filmed his rides through big cities and in the countryside employing a helmet cam: These images and sounds represent at least an approach to his own perception. Thus the audience of his documentary handbikemovie will find itself being stuck in a traffic jam on New York´s Times Square, between tramways and car lanes on the Vienna Ring, or alongside a double-decker bus in the heavy traffic of London.
