The Crisis of Civilization is a documentary feature film investigating how
global crises like,
...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, offer a stunning wake-up call proving that ‘another world’
is not merely possible, but on its way.
The film reveals how a failure to understand the systemic context of these
crises, linked to neoliberal ideology, has generated a tendency to deal not
with their root structural causes, but only with their symptoms.
This has led to the
proliferation of war,
including encroachment on civil liberties, while accelerating global crises
rather than solving them.
