Paths Unknown: A short ethnographic film by Jorn van Bladel. By engaging with the ‘off-roader habitus’, paths unknown tries to find the interaction and connection between people, their vehicles, and the places they drive through, in the Australian off-road scene. The film is centred in the relationships and experiences shared between off-roaders and Jorn. Experiences that span from driving the vast distances Australia is known for, to the friendships and banter that come with working on vehicles which are constantly exposed to some of the roughest terrain traversable by car.
