Technological advancement, economic development, population increase –
are they signs of a thriving society? Or too much of a good thing?
Executive Produced by Martin Scorsese, this provocative documentary
explores the concept of progress in our modern world, guiding us through
a sweeping but detailed survey of the major “progress traps” facing our
civilization in the arenas of technology, economics, consumption, and
the environment. Featuring powerful arguments from such visionaries as
Jane Goodall, Margaret Atwood, Stephen Hawking, Craig Venter, Robert
Wright, Michael Hudson, and Ronald Wright, this enlightening and
visually spectacular film invites us to contemplate the progress traps
that destroyed past civilizations and that lie treacherously embedded in
our own. Directors: Mathieu Roy & Harold Crooks 2011 Canada 86min.
