Can this man predict when your world will crumble?
The explosive new documentary from the director of “The Yes Men” and “American Movie”.

It’s the shattering documentary that has been called “superb” (Entertainment Weekly), “hypnotic and haunting” (Time Magazine) and “so masterfully made it s impossible to look away” (AllMovie.com).

“Collapse” is the story of Michael Ruppert, former Los Angeles police officer turned rogue reporter whose eerie prediction of the current financial crisis shocked millions. Now Ruppert is warning of a new meltdown, one rooted in oil, economics, and covert U.S. policies that are leading us all towards unprecedented global disaster. Is he a prophet who can clearly see America’s terrifying future, or a conspiracy theorist fueled by fear and paranoia? And if Ruppert is right, can this slide into catastrophe be stopped? Experience this sometimes harrowing, often poignant and always riveting look into the mind of the ultimate outsider.
