Storyline

Three miles north of Molkom, hidden deep in the lakeside forests of Sweden, lies Ängsbacka, a 21st Century playground for adults. Once a year, their gates open to a thousand international participants, placed in "Sharing Groups" at random. A Swedish celebrity, a Californian hippie, a Finnish grandmother and a backpacking Australian rugby coach, who stumbled on the wrong party, are amongst the group that take us on an unforgettably quirky, two-week emotional rollercoaster. Firewalking, shamanism, tantric sex and a myriad other physical, psychological and esoteric experiences guide our unlikely heroes towards enlightment, love, loathing and themselves. Will they ever be the same again? Written by Third Eye Film Productions

Great fun - "I don't know when I'm coming but prepare"
30 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see Three Miles North of Molkom at the Edinburgh International Film Festival screening on the 29th June.

Along with Encounters at the End of the World, Standard Operating Procedure and To See If I'm Smiling it was one of the most interesting (and funny!) films I saw.

The directors Rob and Corrina were kind enough to spend time answering questions after the screening which they answered with honesty and humour.

Nick the Australian rugby coach was also there and he's exactly the same in person as he was in the film. Anyone who wears shorts and a t-shirt in Edinburgh in June is a legend in my book.

Rob, Corrina and Nick also spent time chatting to people outside who didn't get the chance to ask a question at the screening.

Nick did say that Rob and Corrina suggested he do some things for the cameras - the trip in the plane with Swami G is the most obvious but the film doesn't suffer because of this.

Hopefully the film will have a wider release so more people can see it as it's worth the price of admission alone to see an instructor ask one of the group to stop him running at them with their mind (I'm not spoiling anything if I say this didn't go entirely according to plan!)
