Scene taken from documentary ‘Surplus: Terrorized into being consumers“
Has director Gandini been using a crystal ball in order to make this award winning 2003 documentary film? Surplus gives a clear prognosis of the contemporary economic crisis and is a treat for critical minds. Images of George Bush, Fidel Castro and Microsofts Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer are combined with controversial statements of anti-capitalist and anarchy-primitivist John Zerzan. An interesting twist is given by the cleverly edited music, lip dubs and sound bites, used as playful references towards commercials predominating the Western consumerist society.
