In March 2021, together with Brooklyn-based drummer Raf Vertessen and Belgian pianist Andreas Bral, Hanne walked the whole Belgian coastline in the company of a camel and a camera crew. The goal was to register this coastline by recording the musical impressions of the trio alongside the road. Everyday improvised sets were played and recorded on different locations in- and outdoors, starting at the French border and ending five days later at the border with the Netherlands.

The result will be a 50-minutes musical documentary; an ode to imagination and persistence, a plea for slowing down and truly encountering one another. 

The release of this movie will be in March 2023, together with the release of the album of the trio.
