Transition Oahu presents the Hawaii premiere of The Crisis of Civilization, a documentary feature film investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system.
Weaving together archival film footage and animations, film-maker Dean Puckett, animator Lucca Benney and international security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed – author of A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization: And How to Save It – offer a stunning wake-up call proving that ‘another world’ is not merely possible, but on its way.
Ultimately, The Crisis of Civilization is a film about ideas: ideas that have gotten us into this mess, and ideas that can get us out – if we want to.
Presented in partnership with Don Brown and Monday Movie Cafe.
