Documentary Film | 43 min | Language: Swedish | 2019 | Director: Antonie Frank Grahamsdaughter
When the eco-philosopher Lars Larsen embarks on a crusade against the church and consumerism, artist and filmmaker Antonie Frank Grahamsdaughter decides to follow and document him, a close portrait built over ten years.
Lars has settled in a forest outside Stockholm. He has dug a hut under the ground not to be discovered. Here he has created a free space for his philosophy and his freedom. He starts a rebellion against parishes in Stockholm and in Jönköping, by visiting churches and staging protest actions in the middle of sermons. In some newspaper articles he is called the "rebellious monk". Lars preaches himself, standing on drawers or in free churches where he is admitted.
