Surplus: Terrorized into being consumers

2003-  Erik Gandini:  This is a documentary about the consumer culture, and its bad influence. It looks at the different arguments that capitalism and technology have given the people to be acepted at the beginning. The frontline of these two concepts used to tell people that they were done for people to save time and inclusive that technology would help people to not to have to work. The film is about our world, the modern civilisation that eats more than needed. It’s not very much information that is physicly showed, its the pictures in symbios with music that is the real strength in this flick. The film leans towards anarcho-primitivist ideology and argues for a kind of fulfilling life.
