Breaking Social

Director: Fredrik Gertten

Sweden,  2023



All societies are based on the idea of a social contract. We work, study, and pay taxes. Diligence and hard work should be rewarded, but this is rarely the case. The film examines the global pattern of kleptocracy and extractivism but also finds hope on the path. A way beyond cynicism and despair.
