The best films around the themes of consumption, unlimited growth, an abundant and throwaway society and alternative lifestyles.
Consumption promises us great happiness. There are always new products in abundance and at cheap prices. But do we actually buy what we need or what is produced? Constantly new products at cheap prices increase consumer demand and reduce the useful life of products. The consequences: high resource consumption and huge mountains of waste.
So how can we live a good life away from consumption?
The films in this section show the effects of mass consumption on the environment and on people, but also alternative models of life and production. With our purchasing decisions, we influence what is produced every day. We are the clients of the manufacturers.
