Handmade utopias - a filmic search for the worldwide phenomenon of the micronation movement. Do-it-yourself states that have distanced themselves from the economic and political mainstreaming of globalization. A road movie covering land, water and the wildest realms of the imagination. Simultaneously creative documentary and pulsating cultural portrait, the film traces a new "unplugged" generation - their motives, their anxieties and their dreams. A film that shows how this generation realizes its escapist fantasies in new economic and political forms and how they collide with oppressive everyday realities.Written by
Clips from the movie were used in 2016 in the very sexual music video "Feel the smell of the spray" by french Techno artist Judith Juillerat (Lentonia Records), directed by Nicotine/Raoul Duke. See more »

I saw this movie yesterday for the first but fore sure not the last time!
Such a fascinating and staggering theme directed so thrilling! unbelieveable pictures!
Everybody should see this movie and take these 6 stories to heart. Nowadays political turbulances with all that re-arising of the right - wing extremism make movies like "Empire Me" so absolutely important. So glad to read that "Empire Me" got a prize named "Prix du Film Rebelle"!
Thanks to Paul Poet for this really "moving" movie!
