We live in a world where our economic system has made itself invisible and eludes understanding. In recent years, we often have had little more than a diffuse and unsatisfactory feeling that something is going wrong. But what? The episodically-structured feature-length documentary OECONOMIA explains the rules of capitalism and reveals inside why our economy paradoxically grows (and profits are seemingly only possible) when we are in debt. Moving beyond confused media coverage, which makes it difficult to understand the logic behind this dangerous game, OECONOMIA sets out to demystify the perpetual increase in capital – no matter what the cost.
The second documentary feature from German director Carmen Losmann, OECONOMIA had its world premiere at the Berlinale where it was hailed as “thoroughly researched, engaging and thought-provoking” (Cineuropa).
