Legendary Filmmaker Werner Herzog, once said, “filmmakers should skip film school and instead make a journey alone on foot, let’s say from Madrid to Kiev… this journey would teach one more about what cinema truly means than would five years of sitting in classrooms.” It would take one dedicated, resourceful and crazy filmmaker to attempt such a feat. Meet Lee Kazimir.
In More Shoes, Kazmir takes us on an amazing journey through the European countryside…on foot. Covering six months, seven countries and countless wild cats, Kazmir’s film discovers the extent of his own mettle while showing us the universal nature of humanity. Along the way he meets a cast of characters WGA members only dream of creating. From fabulous French café patrons to an elderly woman celebrating her birthday picking Asparagus by the train tracks, More Shoes displays the breath of life one can only experience by living it not just recording it. Life truly becomes art in this more than unique road movie.
