“A passionate anarchist road movie.” – Le Monde
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.
A book-film project by Isabelle Fremeaux and John Jordan published in French by Editions Zones/La Decouverte, Paris, 2011. Designed by SKART. Available in German (Nautilus,2012) and South Korean (Beautiful People, 2013).
