These short films examine how capitalism, colonialism, consumption and ceding our power by granting others authority over our lives creates chaos. There is no single magic “fix”, but rather the need for a movement to dismantle the systems of inequality and to co-create alternatives, without hierarchy, where people come before profit, where the collective needs of the many outweighs the greed of the few.
Films For Action is a community-powered learning library for people who want to change the world.
Film offers us a powerful tool to raise awareness of important issues not covered by the mainstream news. Our goal is to provide citizens with the information and perspectives essential to creating a more just, sustainable, and democratic society.
