Journey to Utopia

Rejsen til Utopia

Denmark, Norway, Sweden
2020 — 88 min / Colour



The enlightened, forward-thinking Mo family lead a picture-perfect life on their farm in Norway. But recently, climate anxiety and a fear for what kind of planet will be left to their three children is keeping them up at night. Taking a giant leap of faith, the family decides to take action and move to 'Permatopia’: a brand new self-sufficient, organic farming cooperative in Denmark. But will green community living really be a sustainable solution for a family of five headstrong individualists, each with their own very different expectations and dreams? A heartwarming and brutally honest film about one family’s attempt to make a real difference under the shadow of climate change.

Director Biography

Norwegian filmmaker Erlend Eirik Mo has been making documentaries for more than 15 years. Now, he serves as the protagonist of his new film, in which he shows how he, his wife and children adapt to a new life cut off from civilisation. Going by the title Journey to Utopia and slap bang in the middle of the funding process, the project has just scooped the Eurimages Co-production Development Award at CPH:FORUM, the CPH:DOX Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival’s sidebar dedicated to project development.
