The Meaningful Movies are back! In this edition we will screen the documentary "Journey to Utopia".

In this documentary, the late filmmaker Erlend and opera singer Ingeborg make a bold decision to leave their farm behind and join an ecological experiment called Project Permatopia with their children, to become completely self-sufficient. However, the reality they encounter is far more challenging.

During this Meaningful Movie night we explore how to navigate challenges and find mental resilience while facing the climate crisis. After watching the documentary, two changemakers share their personal experience about swimming against the tide of conventions.

Please note: The movie is in Danish, but includes English subtitles.

About Journey to Utopia:

“This might be the last film I make before the world ends,” says Norwegian filmmaker Erlend Mo at the beginning of “Journey to Utopia.” In the documentary Erlend and his wife Ingeborg are deeply concerned about climate change. Feeling an escalating need to take action, they sign up for Project Permatopia in Denmark: a community of like-minded individuals dreaming of self-sustainability.

However, as they arrive, doubt quickly sets in…

Join Erlend, Ingeborg, and their children on a gripping journey as they navigate the challenges of building a sustainable future amidst uncertainty and doubt. Will they find the strength to endure, or will their utopian dreams crumble before their eyes? “Journey to Utopia” is a compelling exploration of resilience, determination, and the quest for a better world.

Directed by Erlend Eirik Mo (1967-2021).
