Dir: Johan Grimonprez
USA 2016 1 h 30 min
Andrew Feinstein, David Leigh, Helen Garlick
A smart, hard-hitting look at the global arms trade, the vast sums of money that are made and the corruption that creates. Fascinating interviews reveal the shocking realities of Britain’s central role in this dirty trade that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives. Based on Andrew Feinstein’s globally acclaimed book, the film deftly weaves the multiple strands of its global story into a compelling case against the guilty parties. In the hope that if we better understand what really goes on, we can see through the horror, and create a better future.
A panel discussion will follow the film , with the author of Shadow World, Andrew Feinstein.
“ . . . superb, gut-punching exploration of the global arms trade is the sort of catalyst to energize politically-minded viewers.” Variety
