Introduction by the directors of the film.

In 1971, hundreds of young people claimed the 85 acres of an abandoned military base in Copenhagen. Finding it politically unpopular to evict the settlers, the Danish government declared Christiania a “short-term social experiment”. Following 40 years of tense relations with the government, much of it focusing on the open hashish trade, Christiania is on its way to becoming a legitimate community.
