ABOUT THE FILM

Celebrated theorists Silvia Federici, Cornel West, Wendy Brown and Angela Davis are joined by doctors, activists, refugees and politicians to confront some of the most urgent issues of the day: inequality, xenophobia, education and globalization. Reminding us that our challenges aren’t new – as figures like Plato and Rousseau remain surprisingly relevant to our current predicaments – this idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents. If we want to live in democracy, we must first ask what the word even means. Nominated for a Grand Jury Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest and nominated for Best Documentary at the Camden International Film Festival.
