My name is Patrick Rohner. I am a french and swiss citizen. I was seven years young, when I had the first contact with the sea and my parents were very proud to show the Mediteranean Sea to their kids. I remember the trip by car to southern France. Behind every hill I expected to see the ocean, but everytime there was a new green valley and I had to wait a lot of hills to finaly see the ultramarine colored, slightly vaulted line on the horizon.
The first steps in the warm sand, the salty water, the roaring surf, the smell of iodine in the hot air, the castels made of sand, all these first impressions established my everlasting passion and yearning for the sea.
Therefore my passion for adventure and the sea is a result of my way of living in my childhood.
During my life I've been traveling all over the world, taking a lot of fotographs and making movies. Saililing trips and freighter cruises showed the beauty of the oceans to me and so I got the idea to realize a documentary cine-movie.
