Neo-liberalism and Resistance – A movie series
5 weeks until 14th April?
14th April 2013
The movie collective proudly presents a series of movies and discussions entitled “Neo-liberalism and Resistance”. Over five weeks from the 17th of March until the 14th of April, we want to look at a range of examples and stories from across the world. |
What is Neo-liberalism?
In the first section, we want to focus on Neo-liberalism. The first movie of the series, “The Shock Doctrine”, explores what Neo-liberalism is and how Chile served as a laboratory for Neo-liberal policy making during the late 70s until today. From there we move on to a documentary by the movie collective “Info-War” that show the current political-economic situation in Greece and how the country is affected by attempts to confront the current economic crisis by what has become the core of Neo-liberal policies: Privatisation, liberalisation, and social cuts.
The Situationist Internationale and resistance in Chile
In the second section, the series draws attention to both historic and contemporary examples of resistance to an unjust economic and political order. The famous movie by Guy Débord, “Society of the Spectacle”, sheds light on a movement known as the Situationist Internationale that played a key role in the events around May 1968 and continue to inspire activists all across the globe from the ad-busters to the Yes-men.
