‘Accept misfortune as the human condition.’ – is a line from the ancient book of wisdom, “Tao de Ching” by Lao Tsu. It also happens to be one of the lines that musician Randy K sang in the subway about ten years ago, as he made a musical interpretation of that book for the passers by. And it seems that line has woven itself into the fabric of his life lately.

Randy was back in New York a while after we finished filming (for “Randy evaluates Sweden“). He was walking down a Lower East Side street one evening when a stranger approached him and punched him in the face, knocking him out.

In “On Freedom” I visit Randy at the boat where he now lives, and we talk about ‘the clunk’, as he calls it. An event that profoundly changed his life. This film touches on topics like sustainable living, having less but giving more and forgiving your enemy.
