Wow, check this riveting short film by Alfonso Cuaron in response to a new book by Naomi Klein: The Shock Doctrine. Her publishers asked for a blurb and he made a film—art at work for social change. My respect for Cuaron just keeps rising. I’m going to hit the library up for a copy and read it as soon as I can. Also, John Frickin’ Cusack is producing a movie inspired by the book, called War, Inc. Here’s a link to an interview he conducted with her about the book and a trailer for the movie (Warning: Huffington Post link).
