Synopsis
Thomas Hoepker is one of the most important living photographers worldwide. His images have become icons of photojournalism. He was the first German to be accepted as a full member of the legendary photo agency Magnum and later headed it as chairman. Then Thomas Hoepker was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. A blow of fate, but one he consciously wants to confront, with a lot of humour and zeal for work. His last big dream: a road trip through the USA together with his wife Christine. Once again they want to embark on a great journey together, a new edition of the trip that established his international reputation as a photographer in the early 1960s. He called this road trip through the USA "Heartland". Once again, Thomas Hoepker wants to explore the heart of the United States with his camera, the country that has been his adopted home for over 30 years.

Director's Statement
„Es macht mich glücklich und auch ein wenig stolz, den großen Magnum Fotografen Thomas Hoepker auf der für ihn wohl persönlichsten Reise seiner Karriere mit der Kamera begleitet zu haben. Seine Fotos kannte ich aus Kindertagen, den Menschen hinter diesen ikonischen Bildern wollte ich unbedingt entdecken. Doch auch uns hat die Pandemie eiskalt erwischt, zwei Wochen vor Drehbeginn mussten wir coronabedingt eine Vollbremsung hinlegen mit ungewissem Ausgang. Dass dieses Herzensprojekt dann schließlich doch stattfinden konnte, grenzt an ein Wunder, das mich mit Demut erfüllt. Ich hoffe, dass sich die Magie dieser sehr besonderen Reise auch auf das Kinopublikum mit überträgt.“
