"The fortune you seek is in another cookie" has it´s World Premiere at the
CPH:DOX Copenhagen - DOX AWARD Competition



'From the silence among mummies in a Chilean desert to youth street riots in Istanbul, the occupied
Cinecittà film studios in Rome and a demonstration in Chile. Like a flaneur who sees the world with
the poetic gaze of an outsider, the film's nameless narrator travels around the world in search of
happiness. Not as a sentimental feeling of pleasure, but as an idea and practice, which nonetheless
turns out to be just as volatile as the images that his buzzing 16mm camera capture in beautiful
and gritty scenes. Images that turn their back on him, but which throug visions and encounters
and with a silent fury initiate him (and us) to a fundamental, human search for meaning, cohesion,
knowledge and freedom. It could easily have become a pretentious affair, but Johannes Gierlinger
turns the abstract concepts upside down in a politically down-to-earth film, which above all is about
resistance. His debut, 'The Fortune You Seek is in Another Cookie' is a dizzying experience in the
essayistic tradition of Chris Marker and the early explorers. A film for anyone who yearns to see
the world anew.'

'A lusciously shot journey filled with nostalgic yearning, an invisible narrator leads us on a quest
for the ever-elusive sensation of happiness.'
