The Most Beautiful Ferry Crossings in the World

Ferries connect. Ferries create "bridges" – over rivers, canals, lakes and seas. Flexible in time and space but still at the mercy of the wind and the weather. In this documentary, the film crew travels some of the most exciting ferry crossings in the world.

Ferries connect. Ferries create "bridges" – over rivers, canals, lakes and seas. And yet they are different to immovable structures. Firmly anchored crossings, such as stone or iron bridges and also tunnels, are used by people and vehicles whenever they want. Each in his own time. Ferries, on the other hand, are mobile "bridges", flexible in time and space, yet at the mercy of the wind and the weather. For this reason, ferry schedules and routes cannot always be counted on. And for a short time at least, whether hours or days, whether daily or occasionally, those who board the ferry share with all the other passengers – including cattle and sheep – a common fate on the sometimes adventurous journey between here and there.
