The Castle Builder

12 Feb 2018

We begin with the extraordinary little known story of an inmate of a Norwegian psychiatric institute who quietly built a castle on a remote headland over five years.

From there, we learn of others inspired to build extraordinary structures - alone, and in secret. Like an inspirational TED talk with a punk rock soundtrack, The Castle Builder is an emotional and hard-rocking journey to the outer limits of creativity and building regulations.
