Kombi Man

In a race against time, a man goes on a fun filled adventure to find a Kombi van, revisit his hippie youth and explore the meaning of life.

About the documentary

Meeting a colourful array of characters in the Australian Kombi world, the main character discovers that Kombis are not only cultural icons of freedom but are now also big business. While attempting to get a clapped-out Kombi on the road, he courageously faces his own mortality and embarks on a spiritual journey reminiscent of the 1960s counterculture.

With the help of friends and family and empowered by a sense of urgency and the preciousness of life, he dreams of one last road trip along the spectacular Great Ocean Road.
