CHRISTIANIA—40 YEARS OF OCCUPATION

DIRECTOR: ROBERT LAWSON, RICHARD JACKMAN - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE, WA)

 

(DOC) For over 40 years a squatter community has occupied an abandoned military base in the center of Copenhagen, Denmark. The community was born when youthful idealism and a severe housing shortage incited hundreds of young people to turn 85 acres of deserted brick buildings, woods, ramparts and canals into their home.

The facility’s mere presence has bitterly polarized their town, so the two apply in stealth. Austyn is accepted— ushered away and out of contact into EvCorp’s shadowy interior—leaving Rob to bear the burden of secrecy and the private concern that all may not be well with his friend. As he navigates both sides of the town’s deepening rift, guilt and denial do battle in his mind, eerie visions, paranoia and a strange physical...
