Regional, fresh and organic food for 1,5 million people; smart urban living using only a fraction of energy usually burned; a smartphone produced on a fair basis, and a self-managed tea plant whose workforce fought more than three years to take its future into its own hands. People all over the world are searching for alternatives besides unbridled capitalism, which inherently produces incredibly rich people on the one hand but incredibly poor ones on the other. Is there somewhere a model for a fair society? Four people say: Yes! They took a path apart from greed and profit – and along their new way they have learnt a lot. Contextualized by experts who supplement their stories, they take us on a personal journey to the promising possibilities of solidarity: fair living, preserving nature, sharing and cooperating. “Utopia Revisited” is a cinematic expedition to the pioneers of a new society.
