It's the Economy, Stupid!
OVID is proud to have assembled a preeminent collection of films and documentary series on labor, economic injustice (and efforts towards justice), capitalism, economic history, political economy and related issues. Some of our films are didactic, others quietly observational.
Michael Apted’s 56 UP is of course a classic of class consciousness, and an X-ray of British society, and Ilan Ziv’s CAPITALISM is a monumental series on the history of economic ideas, and of our economic system. You will find here films from around the world, from China and South Africa, and others made close to home in Muncie, Indiana, and Washington, DC. Some are biting critiques of current conflicts, others point the way towards a more hopeful and fair future.
