A Tipping Point Film Fund event – all tickets £7
Four Horsemen is the debut feature from director Ross Ashcroft. Today’s four horsemen – socially organised violence, debt, iniquity and poverty – govern all of our lives, and the documentary reveals the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster.
Twenty-three leading thinkers (including Noam Chomsky and Joseph Stiglitz) – frustrated at the failure of their respective disciplines – speak out to explain how the world really works. The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction, but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned. Solutions to the multiple crises facing humanity have never been more urgent but, equally, the conditions for change have never been more favourable.
Stay afterwards for a discussion of the issues with the director, Ross Ashcroft.
