    The neoliberal revolution in New Zealand. In the early 1980s a group of free market economists came to dominate policy at the New Zealand Treasury. With the election of the Labour Party in 1984 and the appointment of Roger Douglas as finance minister, the new right elite took power and began relentlessly and ruthlessly turning New Zealand into their vision of the model free market state. "A coherent and comprehensive account of the years which will define this country for a century to come." New Zealand Herald.

      For more than a generation New Zealand had genuine full employment. But with the election of the Labour Party in 1984, unemployment became a tool of neoliberal economic policy soon rising to 6% and then 11%. The policies and institutions that had sustained full employment were abandoned and reconstructed to maximise the effectiveness of the new policy. Political battles were fought inside and outside of parliament as the social and economic life of the nation changed and a impoverished underclass deliberately created. This is the story of that transformation.

        Very special thanks to the Interzona 42's Truck Team (http://www.interzona42b.blogspot.pt/), with whom I lived this mind blowing voyage, and also many thanks to everybody that crossed our path and shared their dreams & opinions for the camera! Aniché! From Estonia to Burkina-Faso! 2010-2011 2012 Message: Nowadays the access to information is easy to obtain and endless in quantity but, with it, often comes the frustration of not being able to put it into practice and, consequently, feeling useless to prevent the injustices you see happening every day against the poor and the helpless. We can use the power of knowledge through so many new vehicles: - exclusively for our own self or devoting our time to self giving projects; - by expressing our opinion online or by making a radical angered stand in the streets. All is possible; all is precious in this globalized world that continues to show many contradictions and faces so many challenges. Are we truly prepared to look over all our cultural differences, learn to connect, reach out to those in need and live together? Ironically where life is hard, politicians are corrupt and there is no freedom of speech, you can find free spirits with an outstanding strength; while in rich and industrialized countries we find nations incarcerated by their social duties; enslaved by a mindless quest of individual wealth and manipulated by the media to be unconscious afraid of everything they know anything about. This documentary is a reflection on the meaning of pure freedom, by interviewing people that have crossed my path from Western Africa to Northern Europe. What drives African to want to mimic white culture? And what drives the alternative youth of the old continent to escape the system and chose to live self-sustainably away from a pressuring, almost perfect, society? Trying to unveil a pattern of thought for a future of hope I titled my work as: “Fountain Flame Fruit” since if we stop for a moment and realize that’s all we really need to everything to live happily ever after, and survive: - a source of drinking water - a warm shelter - and something healthy to eat When did we forget this natural law and why can’t we just let go of the pointless privileges of the few for the children of tomorrow to also… believe in these three sacred simple rules! "Fonte Chama Fruto" brevemente... "Fountain Flame Fruit" coming soon...

          Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, but Naomi Klein says Sandy's tragic destruction can also be the catalyst for the transformation of politics and our economy. The author of the international bestseller The Shock Doctrine joins Bill to discuss hurricanes, climate change, and democracy. Klein has been in New York visiting the devastated areas -- including those where “Occupy Sandy” volunteers are unfolding new models of relief -- as part of her reporting for a new book and film on climate change and the future. “Let’s rebuild by actually getting at the root causes. Let’s respond by aiming for an economy that responds to the crisis both [through] inequality and climate change,” Klein tells Bill. “You know, dream big.” In the same broadcast, former Federal Election Commission Chairman Trevor Potter -- the lawyer who advised Stephen Colbert on setting up a super PAC -- dissects the spending on the most expensive election in American history. Many voices are claiming “money didn’t matter, Citizens United wasn’t a factor,” but Potter disagrees. “Super PACs just upped the ante,” he tells Bill. “If you're a senator and you have just been elected, or heaven forbid you're up in two years, you're thinking I don't have time to worry about deficit reduction and the fiscal cliff. I have to raise tens of thousands of dollars every day to have enough money to compete with these new super PACs… And that means I need to be nice to a lot of billionaires who often want something from me in order to find the funding for my campaign.”

              A documentary adaptation Naomi Klein's 2007 book, The Shock Doctrine. An investigation of disaster capitalism, based on Naomi Klein's proposition that neo-liberal capitalism feeds on natural disasters, war and terror to establish its dominance. Based on breakthrough historical research and four years of on-the-ground reporting in disaster zones, The Shock Doctrine vividly shows how disaster capitalism -- the rapid-fire corporate re-engineering of societies still reeling from shock -- did not begin with September 11, 2001. The films traces its origins back fifty years, to the University of Chicago under Milton Friedman, which produced many of the leading neo-conservative and neo-liberal thinkers whose influence is still profound in Washington today. New, surprising connections are drawn between economic policy, shock and awe warfare and covert CIA-funded experiments in electroshock and sensory deprivation in the 1950s, research that helped write the torture manuals used today in Guantanamo Bay. The Shock Doctrine follows the application of these ideas through our contemporary history, showing in riveting detail how well-known events of the recent past have been deliberate, active theatres for the shock doctrine, among them: Pinochet's coup in Chile in 1973, the Falklands War in 1982, the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Asian Financial crisis in 1997 and Hurricane Mitch in 1998.
