The Shock Doctrine

An investigation of "disaster capitalism", based on Naomi Klein's proposition that neo-liberal capitalism feeds on natural disasters, war and terror to establish its dominance.
Directed by Award Winning filmmakers, Michael Winterbottom and Matt Whitecross, this is a feature documentary based on Naomi Klein's bestselling new book, The Shock Doctrine, which 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.
