THE SHOCK DOCTRINE Documentary Trailer
Check out the trailer and photos for THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, a documentary directed by Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross.
This is a film that we will be screening at the Festival, so we should have a review for it soon, but in the meantime, enjoy the trailer and photos.
The Shock Doctrine Synopsis: 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 doctrine’s 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 Pinochet’s Chile, Boris Yeltsin’s Russia, Margaret Thatcher’s Great Britain, and most recently through the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
will have its World Premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival (January 21-31) as an out-of-competition film. Watch the trailer and check out more photos below.
