Surviving Progress

2012 | 86 min. minutes | Rated NR

Things are not good. Most reasonably aware people know this, at least vaguely, when they look at the litanies of economic and environmental alarm bells in the news—but the Martin Scorsese-produced Surviving Progress connects the dots for you, and then beats them over your head: Human civilization currently values technological progress over nearly everything else. But, like our primitive ancestors who got so good at hunting mammoths that they wiped out their own food source, Surviving Progress argues that too much progress is leading us to a dead end. It is, as you would imagine, a rather depressing intake of wisdom.
