Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consumers (DVDRIP) Belgesel + altyazı
Pour voir le film en français:
Surplus - la consommation par la terreur (film, vostf 51' 12)

Consumer confidence has been low since September 11. A successful war against Iraq was supposed to be the only way to restore that confidence - and our happiness. But is shopping our salvation? Do we have a choice? Why is the lifestyle of consumerism a source of such rage today? How come the privilege of buying goods does not automatically lead to happiness? Why all this emptiness despite our wealth?
Surplus’ approach is to portray this issue from an emotional rather than a factual perspective: in the US, India, China, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, Canada and Cuba. George W Bush’s famous "shopping-speech" calling for a war against terrorism that deters the nation from the fear of consumption. Castro responding with hymns to the anti-consumerist, advertising-free island of Cuba. Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer preaching that the computer will give us peace on earth ‘bringing people together’ while Adbuster Kalle Lasn warns that advertising pollutes us mentally, that over-consumption is unsustainable and that we are running out of oil.
Irónico y corrosivo documental de Erik Gandini, realizado por la productora independiente ALMO de Estocolmo. Parte de un análisis del papel del consumidor actual. Una representación perfecta y excepcional de la cultura antisistema. Entre una edición frenética, un constante acompañamiento musical y un inagotable juego de montajes audiovisuales, Surplus logra poner en evidencia las contradicciones del sistema.
