Director: Ross Ashcroft
Cast:

Ross Ashcroft’ debut is a documentary which predicts the decline of the Western civilisation, and more specifically the end of American imperialism. He interviews a number of great thinkers who explain how greed has crippled the free markets, how poverty has given rise to terrorism, and how the mankind has ruthlessly pillaged the natural resources and destroyed the environment in the process. The film not only explains how things stand, it suggests corrective measures, which for the most part sound like a pipe dream. Ashcroft presents a fine summary on the various topics, but frankly many of the details he brings forth are familiar from earlier films like Inside Job, Capitalism: A Love Story, and An Inconvenient Truth.
