Filmnight: The Crisis of Civilization
26 Sep 2012 19:15
How do climate change, energy and oil depletion, food shortages, economic crises, terrorism and foreign policy all interact as converging symptoms of a failing global system? Is industrial civilization sustainable into the 21st century?
This is a fantastic film that gives a concise overview of the many challenges and problems we face.
Also features clowns, car crashes, explosions, acrobats, super heroes, xylophones and much, much more.
A fantastic film. I don't think I've seen a more comprehensive 'welcome to the 21st Century' . - Richard Heinberg.
Weaving together archival film footage and animations, film-maker Dean Puckett, animator Lucca Benney and international security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed - author of A User's Guide to the Crisis of Civilization: And How to Save It - offer a stunning wake-up call proving that ‘another world' is not merely possible, but on its way.
