For those who believe that consumerism is as big a terror threat as the Taliban, here's some more thought to munch on.

As part of its monthly screening of documentaries under 'Point Of View', Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, in collaboration with the Documentary Circle of Hyderabad and Alliance Francaise, is screening "Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consumers", on 28th August.

Surplus is a 2003 Swedish documentary film on consumerism and globalisation, created by director Erik Gandini and editor Johan Soderberg. It looks at the arguments for capitalism and technology, such as greater efficiency, and more time and less work, and argues that these are not being fulfilled, and that they never will be. The film leans towards anarcho-primitivist ideology, and argues for 'a simple and fulfilling life'.

Erik Gandini is an Italian-Swedish film director, producer and writer. He has made several films, including Amerasians, Sacrificio: Who Betrayed Che Guevara?, Surplus: Terrorized into Being Consumers, Gitmo and Videocracy. Videocracy went on to win awards at Toronto Film Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest, the Golden Graal Awards and the Tempo Documentary Award 2010.

Entry to the screenings is free. Please contact Goethe-Zentrum at 6552-6443 or Alliance Francaise at 2770-0734 / 2770-0736 for further details.
