The Shock Doctrine (2010) Trailer
The trailer for The Shock Doctrine which will premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
Based on the best-selling book by Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine seeks to explain the rise of disaster capitalism: the exploitation of moments of crisis in vulnerable countries by governments and big business. The film traces the doctrines beginnings in the radical theories of Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago, and its subsequent implementation over the past 40 years in countries as disparate as Augusto Pinochets Chile, Boris Yeltsins Russia, Margaret Thatchers Great Britain, and most recently through the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Filmmakers Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross use a brand of artistic license to present a cinematic experience that takes this theory to a new audience. They make heavy use of archival images, offset with new footage of Klein's interviews and lectures. Warning: After viewing this film, you may interpret our world history in a new light.
