Economic Reconstruction from the Bottom Up.

Whether we like it or not, the global economy now affects us as consumers, as workers, as citizens, and as members of the human family. For those with wealth and power, the global economy has meant big benefits. But what does it mean for the rest of us? Are we destined to be its victims? Or can we shape its future – and our own? “Global Village or Global Pillage?” weaves together video of local and transnational activities, interviews, music, and original video comics to show that, through grassroots organizing combined with mutual support around the world, ordinary people can empower themselves to deal with the global economy.

The pathological pursuit of profit and power.

The documentary shows the development of the contemporary business corporation, from a legal entity that originated as a government-chartered institution meant to affect specific public functions to the rise of the modern commercial institution entitled to most of the legal rights of a person. Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” What the study illustrates is that in the its behavior, this type of “person” typically acts like a dangerously destructive psychopath without conscience. The film was nominated for over 26 international awards.

What globalization really looks like and what it is doing to the Earth.

This powerful film brings together art critic John Berger, author of “Ways of Seeing”, and world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado for a discussion about the power of photographic images to inform and inspire. As they peruse Salgado’s book, “Migrations”, a project that took him to 43 countries in order to document the experiences of people pushed from their homes and traditions to cities and their margins – slums and streets and refugee camps, their intimate and wide-ranging conversation, inter-cut with Salgado’s photographs, explores the deeper meanings of Salgado’s images, addressing both their artistic and emotional qualities and their political function as a critique of globalization.
