Rumored to be the ultimate in long-form ruminative experimental travelogues are 
MARE'S TALE (1969, 160 min.) and/or THE MONKEY'S BIRTHDAY (1975, 360 min.), 
both by David Larcher.

one of 'em screened in Leeds this year it seems:

Good luck...

Hello you,
I am trying to pull together a list of experimental films that either fall 
directly under the category of "travelogue" or bear witness to travel and 
distance from a point of origin on the part of the filmmaker. These would not 
be so much ethnographic works which are part of a sustained cultural exchange, 
but films made as a result of the filmmaker "passing through" and acknowledging 
the looming spectre/problem/pleasure of "the tourist film". Warren Sonbert, 
perhaps John Smith's "The Hotel Diaries"? I'm sure there are others...but can 
you name them?
