A portrait of Denmark's most acclaimed and controversial director, Lars von Trier. The film deals with von Trier on a private level as well as with his film universe.
His friends and colleagues describe him as a "playful rascal" who opposes "intellectual authority". That seems pretty fair and probably sums up just about anyone whose creativity verges from the mainstream.
Von Trier says he prefers experience and workshops over film school, and I think that is probably an outlook shared by many. Although I have had little experience on film sets, it seems that the best knowledge comes from doing rather than being told. Sure, watching plenty of films helps, but you just have to get out there and try it.
