Utopia?

DYSTOPIA: WHAT IS TO BE DONE?

Dystopia: What is to be done? is an hour long documentary film available for free viewing and/or download and showing for educational purposes on the website: www.DystopiaFilm.com.  

It analyses a compendium of crises facing humanity – peak oil, climate change, pollution, disease. poverty, terrorism, war etc. – in terms of their complex causal inter-linkages and common framing and exacerbation within the global world economy.

The long time Marxist message that humanity faces a choice between (eco)socialism and barbarism is given a renewed urgency. The website in addition to the film contains a one minute trailer, a resources page and information about the book of the same title and it author.
