ABOUT THE FILM

Concise and clear, this is the definitive statement from activist/intellectual Noam Chomsky on the defining characteristic of our time – the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. Culled from four years of interviews, and helped with clever and helpful graphics, Chomsky lays bare the principles behind the decline of democracy by tracing a half-century of policies designed to favour the most wealthy at the expense of the majority. Chomsky further reflects on his own life of activism and political participation, effectively demonstrating a master-class in social responsibility for the Occupy set. Essential viewing.
