Synopsis

A diary of the making of maverick director Lars von Trier's latest opus, "The Idiots"--true to the anti-artifice tenets of Dogme '95, von Trier decided to shoot "The Idiots" mostly himself, using a handheld Sony VX-1000 consumer digital camcorder. Jargil, with his own VX-1000, tracks von Trier's every step and misstep, adding excerpts from von Trier's nightly audio diary that help transform this portrait of a truly engaged artist.
