Director
Astra Taylor
Certificate
TBA
Running Time
107 mins

Astra Taylor‘s film sets off on a philosophical journey through democracy which spans millennia and continents: from ancient Athens’ ground-breaking experiment in self-government to capitalism’s roots in medieval Italy; from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor.

It’s on screen in the Cities, Future Cities and Film season and will be followed by panel debate on democracy whose participants include director Astra Taylor
