Handmade Utopias existing in the here and now. Socio-poltical explosives for a selfloving neoliberal Empire. For almost eight years film director and author Paul Poet travelled and encountered dozens of existing and real territories that oppose the mainstream: Counterworlds. Micronations. Eco-Villages. Neo-Communities. Modern nomads and secessionists. All of them conscious grains born against the ecomony-concerned capitalist status quo of a New World Order.
A filmic crossover between pop and politics, Cinema Verité and fantasy-flick, an inspiring antidote against the critical big-system mousetraps of globalization and seeming downfall of democracy. Underground temples. Rusty open sea platforms. Sex-centered anti-hierarchies. And anarchist rafts pirating the Western coastlines.
The film will be screened at PoliNation: 2nd International Conference on Micronations on 14 & 15 July 2012 in London.
