Andrew Telling’s “Nowhere to Nowhere” Explores Mental Exhaustion In Cycling
The realm of professional sports is glamorized through media, and accordingly perpetuated amongst those outside of it. London-based filmmaker Andrew Telling explores this through the lens of professional cycling via a new documentary – “Nowhere to Nowhere” – which questions if this obsession, this exaltation, is warranted. Following Kristian House and Felix English (of the Rapha Condor JLT cycling team) on the Pearl Izumi Tour Series through the UK, Telling weaves a story about the mental taxation of the monotony within professionalism. On a larger scale, “Nowhere to Nowhere” comments on athleticism as a spectacle – sometimes glorious, sometimes disillusioned, yet ultimately a sacrificial choice across the board.
