System Error

Documentary with Tim Jackson, investigating the paradigm of ‘economic growth’
May 2018

‘Growing Pains’ is the title for a short edit of the film, hosted on the Aljazeera website.

Synopsis

Why are we so obsessed with economic growth, knowing that it has devastating effects on our finite planet (and ultimately us)? SYSTEM ERROR looks for answers to this principal contradiction of our time and considers global capitalism from the perspective of those who run it. In this manner, the film not only makes the absurdity of our growth-centered system uncomfortably perceptible, but also strikingly questions the seemingly irrefutable rules of the game within a bigger context.

The film is directed by award-winning director Florian Opitz (“Speed—In Search of Lost Time” and “The Big Sellout”). For details, please see the Port-au-Prince’s website.
