This documentary created by director Erik Gandini and editor Johan Söderberg in 2003 is an interesting mix of an artistic music video and documentary style interviews.
It makes the comment that where we need to be is so far from where we are and to get there almost all of what we take for granted and see around us (such as the infrastructure of corporate greed) needs to be rethought. It reminds me of why I really don’t want to go back into being a cog for a financial institution just so I can make and spend more money.
Although I am not really sure how to wake people up from their everyday lives of consumption and supporting their own destruction,some take the approach of shocking others by doing property damage. I think that this documentary does a better job of waking people up than property damage as proposed by an interviewed author. I don’t actually think that this documentary supports property destruction but achieves the same end by exposing you to what is happening and giving you a background as to why it is done.
I keep making one small realization after another which has over the years shaped my view and I recommend this documentary for you to do the same.
