A road trip across the United States documenting those who attempt to manifest utopia and all of its mythology.
American Utopias is a special journey on the mythical roads of the United States of America. We drove 10 000 miles across the country to view firsthand practicing utopias. We saw communities of tiny houses, intentional communities, an urban laboratory and also participated in Burning Man, an artistic gathering in Nevada. All along our journey, we wondered about the possibility of an ideal community and the core values that underpin any such initiative.
