This excellent Greek documentary traces the history of privatization and neoliberalism’s ravages through Europe, from Russia to London, Berlin, Paris and Rome, in order to historicize the current liquidation of Greek state assets. The protest movement in Greece is inspiring and powerful, but economic disaster imposed from without can just as easily give rise to right wing power; Witness Golden Dawn, a Greek Neo-Nazi party, winning 20 seats in the parliament. Featuring Zizek, Naomi Wolf, Ken Loach, and many others, this is a vital history for anyone interested in the constant crises of privitazation, neoliberalism, and the imposition of debt peonage upon Greece, and what it could mean for the rest of Europe and the world.
