Crisis of Civilisation



I finished watching Crisis of Civilisation less than thirty minutes ago; as the titles ran, I left the room with a vague feeling that it must be shared. It says a lot that I could do this easily and without the threat of legal action.

International security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed doesn't once mention anti-capitalism, but the message is very firmly against the system that is currently killing us. It's non-partisan and not for profit, and that's the surest sign that you can have faith in that message - a message that is too important for any pettiness, a message that is about our survival.

Synopsis

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.
