During my voyage as a passeonger onboard the Rickmers Jakarta I caught about 50 hours of film shots. More than 6 months after my return, I finished the work and this is the outcome:
"Round the world on a cargo ship"
A film about my 4 1/2 months' voyage as a passenger on the multipurpose heavy-lift cargo vessel Rickmers Jakarta between February and June 2008.
