American Psychosis

This award winning short film combines visuals of western daily life with an interview with writer and activist Chris Hedges on the subject of societal collapse, totalitarianism and mass psychosis, and our difficulty in seeing what’s right in front of us. Perhaps that sounds like something you’d rather give a pass, but in fact Hedges lays it all out with such comprehensive illumination that his dissection of our illusions leaves us wide-awake. Hedges has won numerous awards including for human rights journalism and his two decades as a foreign correspondent deeply inform his take on Trump’s America.
