Christiania

Watched: 11 August

A documentary about Freetown Christiania, an area of Copenhagen that was transformed by hippies into an idyllic, tolerant commune during the 1970s, and one that has continued to evolve and grow in interesting ways ever since; in fact, thanks in no small part to the easy availability of weed, which is sold openly from makeshift stalls on Christiania’s infamous Pusher Street, the area has been referred to as being Denmark’s fourth biggest tourist attraction. This is a low budget film with few bells and whistles, but there are interesting interviews with residents, who are keen to discuss all manner of issues, and the brief glimpses into their lives are fascinating.
