Unlearning – Happiness is a chicken

Unlearning is a family driven documentary, telling the true story – definetely NOT from an objective point of view – of a not extraordinary family: mum (an anxious teacher on salary-freeze), dad (a TV director sick of unsatisfactory repetitive formats) and daughter (a 5 year old girl, simply at the mercy of the events). Their city-background collided with vegan eco-villages, hippies gatherings, “hostels” arranged in caves or in carravan parks, libertarian schools and even anarchist communes. They had to clean stalls, dismantle circus tents and even join the Freegan community, while recovering “expired” food from the containers located outside the markets and malls.
