Blurring the fluid boundaries between present and future, documentary and fiction, Paths Through Utopias is a utopian road movie exploring a postcapitalist 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.
Film by Isabelle Fremeaux, John Jordan and Kypros Kyprianou.
Music by Isa Suarez
Book by Isabelle Fremeaux and John Jordan
MusicBox investigates how the brain perceives dimensionality in relation to human gesture and movement using abstracted temporal and spatial data. Sound and image interlock to generate an intriguing liminal space between the abstract and the descriptive, between mark making abstraction and concrete figuration. 'Music box' is the first film to come out of an on going research and development project funded by the Arts Council of England.
