And here's one for all those people who congregate with placards around the WEF summits.

ECOMOVE International, Germany, is screening a series of 11 documentaries from various countries, from 18th to 22nd January, at Goethe-Zentrum - The Association of German Culture. Today, the inaugural day, a Swedish documentary called Surplus - Terrorized Into Being Consumers, by Erik Gandini, will be screened.

Why does consumerism incite such anger in today's society? Why does the privilege of buying goods not automatically lead to happiness? Why is there still a feeling of emptiness despite personal wealth?

The aim of Surplus is to present this issue from an emotional rather than a factual perspective. Filmed over the course of 3 years in the US, India, China, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, Canada and Cuba, this film has had talented music composer/editor/percussionist Johan Saderberg set about the complicated task of editing the footage.

In the framework of an educational project initiated by ECOMOVE International, a series of film screenings and discussions take place in different cities/regions in India. For this project, ECOMOVE has prepared a film program presenting award-winning documentaries dealing with environmental problems in India, and their global backgrounds and causes. An initial film screening in Chennai as well as a film tour through various villages in South India have taken place in April 2006.

The screenings will start everyday from 6:00pm, at the Goethe-Zentrum office in Hermitage Complex, Opp. Kalanjali Showroom, Hill Fort Road, and are absolutely free. For further details, please contact 6652-6443/2324-1791.
