Released in 2007, “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism”, bestselling book of the canadian writer and columnist Naomi Klein, has been the starting point of already two films. A short documentary promoting the book release and conducted by the mexican director Jonás Cuarón (watch below). The UK film by the famous director of “24 Hour Party People”, Michael Winterbottom, that was premiered at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival.
Now, two months after Michael Moore’s new movie “Capitalism: A love story”, british director Euan Preston is releasing on DVD a third attempt: a recorded lecture of Naomi Klein. ”The Rise of Disaster Capitalism” features Naomi Klein (also the author of “No Logo” and “Fences and Windows”) explaining the ideas and research behind her theory of the Shock Doctrine.
Making the analogy of electroconvulsive therapy (also known as electroshock) used to cure schizophrenia in the 40′s, and what she calls now the “Shock Doctors”, basicaly men of power “shoking” the masses, she’s making pretty clear that these technics used on human beings may also work on societies.
