Ethos



Ethos, a powerful new documentary hosted by Woody Harrelson, is an  investigation into the flaws in our systems, and the mechanisms that  work against democracy, our environment and the the common good.

With  a stunning depth of research and breadth of analysis, this film delves  deep into the inter-connected worlds of Politics, Multi-National  Corporations and the Media. Most of us have wondered at some point how  we have arrived at a situation where democracy is touted as having  created an equal society when all we see is injustice and corruption.

Politicians  openly deceive the public with the support of major corporations and  the mainstream media. Wars are waged, the environment is destroyed and  inequality is on the rise. But what is the source of these institutional  mechanisms which -- when we scratch the surface -- are so clearly  anti-democratic, so contradictory to the values we hold in common and  yet so firmly embedded that they seem beyond discussion?

Ethos  opens a Pandora's box that has it's roots in the cross-roads where  capitalism-meets-democracy, implicates every power-elite puts profit  before people and finally offers a solution whereby you -- the viewer --  can regain control using the one thing they do care about -- your cash.
