Film screening: Freedom for the wolf

Freedom for sale

Philosopher Isaiah Berlin said that freedom for the wolves has often meant death for the sheep. This is the starting point for the film. In what ways do the strong – those who hold the power or the majority – repress the weaker parts of society? Director Rupert Russell takes us on a journey through five countries over the course of three years, from the student rebellion in Hong Kong in 2014, the backlash of the Arab Spring in Tunisia, to stand-up comedians in India and police brutality in the US. Through powerful images, animations and thought-provoking interviews, Russell tries to understand how our feeling of personal freedom to shop is connected to the idea of political freedom. The film is a sharp criticism of democracy in a world in search of new solutions.

In collaboration with Oslo Dokumentarkino.
