UK Premiere

Revealing the rules of the game of capitalism, this film makes visible the essential paradox that the economy only grows, and profits are only possible when we are in debt.

The distanced narrative of media coverage ultimately makes it impossible to understand the monstrous logic behind the economic structure of our everyday lives. Using office devices, computer screens, and meeting rooms in a playful and ironic way, the filmmaker leads a brilliant inquiry into a hidden world. Many questions are asked; few are answered.
