518    Originally produced by Crisis Film in 2012. 
520    The crisis of civilization is a documentary feature film 
       investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, 
       financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and 
       food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed
       global system. Weaving together archival film footage and 
       animations, film-maker Dean Puckett, animator Lucca Benney
       and international security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq 
       Ahmed - author of A user's guide to the crisis of 
       civilization: and how to save it - offer a stunning wake-
       up call proving that 'another world' is not merely 
       possible, but on its way. Like the book on which it is 
       based, the film consists of seven parts which explore the 
       interconnected dynamic of global crises of climate 
       catastrophe; peak energy; peak food; economic instability;
       international terrorism; and the militarization tendency -
       with a final section on the post-peak world. The film 
       reveals how a failure to understand the systemic context 
       of these crises, linked to neoliberal ideology, has 
       generated a tendency to deal not with their root 
       structural causes, but only with their symptoms. This has 
       led to the proliferation of war, terror, and state-terror,
       including encroachment on civil liberties, while 
       accelerating global crises rather than solving them. The 
       real solution, Nafeez argues, is to recognise the 
       inevitability of civilizational change, and to work toward
       a fundamental systemic transformation based on more 
       participatory forms of living, politically, economically 
       and culturally. Also featuring clowns, car crashes, 
       explosions, acrobats, super heroes, xylophones and much, 
       much more! Cinema planeta - Official selection 2012

       global system and a manifesto for constructive social 
       change" - Leeds International Film Festival"A really 
       fantastic overview of the global situation. I don't think

       and ultimately a powerful call-to-action" - Transition 
       Voice"Through interviews, found footage, and animation, 
       the film actually manages to make the unwinding of our 
       conventional, fossil-fueled, more-is-more industrial 
       civilization accessible" - grist.org"This film is 
       necessary viewing, not just for activists but for anyone 
       who's planning to hang around this planet for the 
       foreseeable future. Yes, I'm looking at you." - Ceasefire
