System Error (Germany)

System Error. How will capitalism end?

System Error

  • Florian Opitz

Synopsis

Why are we so obsessed with economic growth? Why do we continue to press ahead, despite knowing for over 40 years that infinite growth on a finite planet isn’t possible? Searching for an answer to this great contradiction of our time, award winning director Florian Opitz (“Speed, In Search of Lost Time” and “The Big Sellout”) plunges deep into the world of real and existent capitalism, joining the dots to reveal previously veiled correlations and laying bare the pathological compulsions of the current system. Along the way, not only does he encounter Karl Marx – still the most important analyst of capitalism – but SYSTEM ERROR also opens up a whole new perspective on the state of affairs by looking at the system through capitalist eyes.
