A Map With Gaps is an account of a journey made by the director's father through Soviet Russia in the early 'seventies, in a van he built and named Supervan. Utilising a combination of archive audio recordings and still photographs, drama reconstruction and animation, a surreal and comic tale unfolds of 12,000 miles, 14 countries and 26 very peculiar days. Essentially this is a catalogue of minor disasters, a story that demonstrates that fact can indeed be stranger than fiction and sometimes the grey area between the two is the most interesting place to explore, particularly if you forgot to bring a map.
