Paths Through Utopias

Les sentiers de l'utopie, (French and English subtitles), 112 minutes

Film by Isabelle Fremeaux, John Jordan and Kypros Kyprianou. Music by Isa Suarez.

A book-film project by Isabelle Fremeaux and John Jordan.

Blurring the fluid boundaries between present and future, documentary and fiction, Paths Through Utopias is a feature length utopian road movie exploring a post-capitalist Europe. Shot during a 7 month journey in 2008 visiting ten utopian experiments, the film is half of the book-film project published in France by Editions Zones. From the direct action Climate Camp set up illegally besides Heathrow airport to a hamlet squatted by French art punks, occupied self-managed Serbian factories to a free love commune in an ex Stasi base, this magicorealist travelogue transports us to a parallel universe where money is worthless and private property has been abolished.

Paths Through Utopias will be screened at the Zilkha Auditorium, Whitechapel Gallery on Thursday 5th September 2013 with a Q&A.
