 In 1971 hundreds of young people occupied 85 acres of buildings, woods and ramparts of an abandoned military base in the center of Copenhagen, Denmark. Finding it politically unpopular to evict the young settlers, the Danish government declared Christiania a "short-term social experiment". Over forty years later, Christiania is the oldest still existing squat in Europe. How did that happen? Winner - Best Documentary Feature, STIFF 2015
