System Error

Take One Action Film Festival presents a screening of System Error, a documentary that reveals the absurdities behind our economic system.

System Error

About System Error

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”, director Florian Opitz reveals the absurdities behind our current system – and asks if it may be time for a radical re-think.

Plus short: Sunday (Dimanche)

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.

Florian Opitz | Germany | 2018 | 95 min | German/English with English subtitles
