A deep and innovative analysis of the current worldwide crisis and revolts built with alternating materials from the ground and intellectual reflections.
Anthropologist David Graeber guides us a profound analysis of the financial systems, current crisis and upheavals in the world. Taking as starting point the tireless Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, the documentary uses reflections of Graeber and other experts to trace the current US general situation and the controversial aspects of society such as work, debt and privacy.
By protests in Egypt, Italy, Guinea, Spain and the US, with an editing that alternate materials from the ground and intellectual reflections, we are led to reflect on the history of the debt, the riots and, above all, the financial control system. And we discover that the speech about the Global South debt made by Thomas Sankara (President of Burkina Faso 1983/1987, Pan-Africanist theorist, charismatic figure of revolution) in 1987, seems to be referred to Western World‘s current financial system: Debt as the New Colonialism
