OBEY: A Film That’s Actually About Something

chris hedges

Movies should be about something. They should bug us. Otherwise, why bother going thru all that crap to make one?

…Something real.

And very upsetting.

See the film from Studiocanoe

Based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by Chris Hedges.

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

It was made completely of clips found on the web.

Warning – this film contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing. Which we have to say here and now is probably why we like it.
