MESYM Crossover Documentary Series #2: Obey

The MESYM Crossover Documentary Series is held every last Sunday of each month @ Merdekarya. Everyone is invited to come watch the documentary, participate in the discussion, and meet like-minded people. Admission is free, just buy a drink!

For our second event, the crossover topic is The Corporate State. We will screen Obey, a film based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.

About Obey

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalization, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but the the author hopes that the viewer can recognize the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

It was made completely of clips found on the web. Music by Clark (warp.net/records/clark).

We’re not only dreamers but also doers. We believe in actions not in violence; we believe in collaboration not in segregation. Numbers, figures, and hash-tags are labels to help us organize this chaotic world. Stories, however, give meaning to our lives and unite us to the shared visions.

About MESYM Crossover Documentary Series

Why “Crossover”? Economics, politics, capitalism, democracy, mass media, etc… all these topics (and many more) are directly or indirectly linked with the natural world that we live in. However, these interconnections are not always apparent. With the Crossover Series we show a documentary of a chosen topic in every event, and discuss its connection with environmental issues. Click here for more info in our Crossover Documentary Series.
