Maastricht, located in the Netherlands, put on this amazing production as a part of the city’s bid to be crowned the European Capital of Culture. I haven’t seen the other entries, but they’ve got my vote!
Michael Oliveri has a rare, unidentified form of Muscular Dystrophy that destroys his muscles after they’re used. He’s been wheelchair-bound since he was 18, and his doctors told him he wouldn’t live to see 26. He’s now 28. But honestly, I’d rather let this amazing man speak for himself, because he’s way better at it than I could ever be.
Find out more about Mikey, and help him get to space, on his Kickstarter page.
Two of my favorite things combined: time-lapses and tilt-shifting. And Barcelona on a summer day ain’t too shabby either. Directed by Pau García Laita.
