Goodiepal is a puckish, enigmatic Danish artist and musician, a notorious and controversial figure in his home country and the perfect subject for a documentary. Sami Sänpäkkilä’s film follows his subject over several years and various reinventions, from the release of a beautifully designed record with a free bank note and no music on it, to inscrutable performance lectures and epic journeys on a self-built bicycle that he uses to power his shows. He gravitates from the fringes of society to an exhibition for the National Museum of Denmark comprising all his material possessions.

'The Goodiepal Equation documentary film reveals a small part of Goodiepal’s personality and mystery. It shows its protagonist as both an uncompromising artist and a loyal friend. Goodiepal is by nature impenetrable, yet consistent. That is why people often either love him or hate him.' Sami Sänpäkkilä, Director.
