Ordinary People's Journey

to Create a True Free State.


Hit the open road with 'Libertopia,'

a documentary film that follows

a unique group of people on individual quests for liberty.


Watch as they follow the call of the Free State Project,

an invitation to the liberty-minded at large

to combine and concentrate their efforts

in a single US state.

From across the country and beyond,

people are uprooting their lives to converge in New Hampshire,

where on a daily basis

they work to create a more free society.





Libertopia is a time capsule of the Free State Project from 2008 - 2009.


It follows three members of the Free State Project - ordinary citizens attempting to reclaim a voice against a government which they believe shares neither their priorities nor their interests.


Often considered radicals in their hometowns, they have begun a mass migration to 21st Century New Hampshire.


The film presents a nation-trekking examination of a high-minded but ultimately practical group of people and their beliefs. Libertopia is a microscopic view of a growing, 13,000-person strong movement with three of its sojourners as the lens.

Whether you agree with their politics or not, one thing that can be said about the individuals featured in Libertopia - they are motivated. They don't just sit around and complain - they take action.


When things don't go according to plan, they don't see failure - only temporary setbacks.

In a lot of ways, their journeys were mirrored in this production. This was a first time feature film for the filmmakers. It was produced by just two people. Later there came an editor and a composer, and we made it all on very limited funds.


Often times, out there on the road with a trunk full of equipment, we wondered if we were crazy to undertake such an ambitious venture during one of the worst recessions in recent history. But every time we needed inspiration, or felt like quitting, all we had to do was look right back through the camera…


How could we give up on such determined individuals? It simply wasn't an option.

Each person in our film is on the journey of their lives, and in watching them, hopefully we're all reminded that life's greatest rewards are only ever born of life's greatest challenges.


Making this film has been both for us, and we are proud to show it here to you.


Thank you for watching, and keep carrying the fire.
