As a central tenet of capitalism, the concept of growth dominates our politics, our economy, and our understanding of what makes the world go round. Yet the social fabric and nature itself are showing the strain of this constant drive for bigger and better at all costs.

Through candid conversations with staunch advocates of “business as usual” (finance journalists, multinational executives, lobbyists, traders and financiers such as former Trump communications officer Anthony Scaramucci, the self- proclaimed “artist of capital”), director Florian Opitz reveals the absurdities behind our current system – and asks if it may be time for a radical re-think.

BEYOND THE SCREEN
Join us in conversation after the film to explore how we may reinvent the economy into a people and planet-centred system, with guests including representatives from WEAll, the Wellbeing Economy Alliance.
