Description
The crisis of civilization is a documentary feature film investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system. 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. Like the book on which it is based, the film consists of seven parts which explore the interconnected dynamic of global crises of climate catastrophe; peak energy; peak food; economic instability; international terrorism; and the militarization tendency - with a final section on the post-peak world. The film reveals how a failure to understand the systemic context of these crises, linked to neoliberal ideology, has generated a tendency to deal not with their root structural causes, but only with their symptoms. This has led to the proliferation of war, terror, and state-terror, including encroachment on civil liberties, while accelerating global crises rather than solving them. The real solution, Nafeez argues, is to recognise the inevitability of civilizational change, and to work toward a fundamental systemic transformation based on more participatory forms of living, politically, economically and culturally. Also featuring clowns, car crashes, explosions, acrobats, super heroes, xylophones and much, much more!
