This film documents the practice of ‘naked short selling,’ a tactic used to buy massive amounts of (non-existent) shares of a company’s stock to make it decrease in price, and often crash. Critics say that short selling should be made illegal. While ‘only’ 1% of shares fail to be delivered by the seller, that amounts to $6 billion dollars a day in ripoffs for investors.

The Crisis of Civilization is a documentary feature film investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system. Weaving together archival film footage and animations, film-maker Dean Puckett, animator Lucca Benney and international security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, offer a stunning wake-up call proving that ‘another world’ is not merely possible, but on its way.

The film reveals how a failure to understand the systemic context of these crises, linked to neo-liberal ideology, has generated a tendency to deal not with their root structural causes, but only with their symptoms. This has led to the proliferation of war, terror, and state-terror, including encroachment on civil liberties, while accelerating global crises rather than solving them.
