with Chris Hedges
Citizens Connect on Oct 22, 2016
Linking existential anxiety to naive optimism and political passivity, Chris Hedges urges us to confront reality in order to escape illusion.
This is a film based on the book Death of the Liberal Class by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.
It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.
The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

Economics professor Costas Lapavitsas argues that a world after capitalism would see money and credit move from being instruments that reinforce inequality into tools for genuine public service. His argument is accompanied by animation from Central Saint Martins students Dimo Mezekliev and Aizhan Abdrakhmanova, using images from bank notes around the world.
