    • Synopsis
    • Micronations. Neo-Communes. Self-Declared Kingdoms. Underground Temples. Swimming Cities. Paul Poet explores these counter-worlds in six episodes, looking at and behind their self-styled posture of little big statesmen subverting the common rule and portrays their struggles and motivations. Dropping out in the twenty-first century means hard work and personal sacrifice, always wandering on the thin path between creative independence and heroic failure. A critical journey through a vibrant modern subculture fueled equally by cinema verite and punk panache.
