A comprehensive interview with the iconic comedian George Carlin. He recounts his early career from childhood dreams of becoming an actor like Danny Kaye all the way up to his 1960′s transformation into a leading voice of the counterculture and then he details the evolution of his writing and finding his true voice on stage in the 1990′s. For Carlin fans the final ten minutes is remarkably touching as he chokes up discussing plans he was forming to star in a one man Broadway show which never came to be and then reflects over his successful career and how wonderfully fulfilling his life has been.

“Planned Obsolescence” is a documentary made by Eva Vidal and Carla Casado, two sixteen-year-old International Baccalaureate students at Colegio Montserrat in Barcelona, Spain. It covers the history of companies intentionally designing products that would break or become obsolete so that consumers would have to buy their products more frequently. What impact does planned obsolescence have on society and on the environment? How much control have corporations gained over us through their omnipresent advertising and forced reliance on their new products that must replace the discarded?
