“Crude Economy” film series at the Impakt Festival in Utrecht


The 2013 edition of the Impakt festival in Utrecht (30.10.-3.11.) is entitled Capitalism Catch-22 and will investigate capitalism and the current economic crisis.

Among the many events we can recomend the Crude Economy film series curated by Florian Wüst:

“Crude Economy revolves around the social and economic transformations in the 20th and early 21st century. The selected films—ranging from experimental cinema and video art to documentary, industrial and educational films—look at the processes of industrialization and modernization, with a special focus on the reconstruction of Western Europe after World War II. The media campaigns that accompanied the American Marshall Plan not only presented the success of the extensive aid programme, but promoted the increase in productivity and trade as prerequisites for growth and prosperity for all.”
