Each July, various followers of New Age thinking from around the globe searching for new levels of enlightenment congregate in a forest in Sweden for the annual No Mind Festival, and filmmakers Corinna Villari-McFarlane and Robert Cannan paid a visit to the festival with a camera crew in tow. Three Miles North of Molkom is a documentary that examines the event as it's seen by a handful of participants. Ljus is an aging flower child from the United States who is still chasing the freedom of the hippie dream. Regina is a musician who is attending with her friend Marit, and they find they've unwittingly becomes the festival's sex symbols. Peter is a husband and father who seem convinced his wife at home needs a new way of living even more than he does. Despite his name, Siddhartha works in a Swedish shipyard and seems the very model of an old salt. Mervi used to work as a career advisor but now she's trying to find a better direction for her own life. And Nick is a footballer from Australia who seems highly skeptical of the mystical and metaphysical chatter all around him, though by the end of the festival he seems to be warming a bit to the advise he's been given. As these seven seekers walk on hot coals, join a massive "sharing circle," contact their primal spirits and contemplate tantric eroticism, they seem alternately puzzled and intrigued by the grab-bag of philosophies being offered at every turn. Three Miles North of Molkom was screened in competition at the 2008 Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto.
