The documentary opens with a quote from Ernst Fischer:
“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable, and help to change it.”
The two hour plus film is split into four parts: Human Nature, Social Pathology, Project Earth, and Rise. It is a critical film, drawing on prominent intellectuals to present their ideas and wedded to a narrative that critiques power, present socioeconomic circumstances, and the world globalized system.
