The Shock Doctrine

This is a short film by Alfonso Cuaron (aka Children of Men) for Naomi Klein's newest book exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades. An official selection of the Toronto Film Festival & the Venice Film Festival A Film by Alfonso Cuaron and Naomi Klein, directed by JonaĦs Cuaron. "When I finished The Shock Doctrine (The Book), I sent it to Alfonso Cuaron because I adore his films and felt that the future he created for Children of Men was very close to the present I was seeing in disaster zones. I was hoping he would send me a quote for the book jacket and instead he pulled together this amazing team of artists -- including JonaĦs Cuaron who directed and edited -- to make The Shock Doctrine short film. It was one of those blessed projects where everything felt fated." - Naomi Klein Watch the short film here: http://www.naomiklein.org/shock-doctrine/short-film The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America's 'free market' policies have come to dominate the world-- through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries. http://www.naomiklein.org/shock-doctrine/the-book
