Surviving Progress : Must Watch Documentary Film

Home  Bookmark and Share

Documentary telling the double-edged story of the grave risks we pose to our own survival in the name of progress.

The film connects financial collapse, growing inequality and global oligarchy with the sustainability of mankind itself.

The film explores how we are repeatedly destroyed by 'progress traps' - alluring technologies which serve immediate need but rob us of our long term future. Featuring contributions from those at the forefront of evolutionary thinking such as Stephen Hawking and economic historian Michael Hudson.

With Martin Scorsese as executive producer, the film leaves us with a challenge - to prove that civilisation and survival is not the biggest progress trap of them all.

Missing the first 30 mins, but still worth a watch. If you have the missing portion or the complete video, please email
