To make BEHAVIORS OF THE BACKPACKER, Sandor Lau, a Chinese/Hungarian-American film student and Fulbright scholar, walked 300 miles alone from Auckland to Cape Reinga, New Zealand's geographic and spiritual tip. This black comedy road trip documentary records the stories of backpackers from around the world, organic farmers, hostel owners, tour operators, Maori communities, and the filmmaker himself. On his journey, Sandor discovers how much a toothbrush handle weighs, why we spend our lives walking backwards, and the true distance to home.
