You will laugh, you will cry, you will learn and be inspired. "The Crisis of Civilization" is a serious dark comedy about the challenges we face and the symbiotic relationship between the various crises.

This is an especially great film to share with youngsters or anyone who will appreciate the animations and kitschy humor in telling the tale of some very dark truths and predicaments.

It's a comprehensive overview of the global situation like it's never been presented before.

From the website:

"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...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 recognize 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!"
