Based on the book The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, Johan Grimonprez and Anadil Hossain collaborate with the author, Andrew Feinstein, to explore how the international weapons industry undermines democracy and perpetuates human suffering. This screening will also feature an introduction by the author and filmmaker, Andrew Feinstein!

ABOUT “SHADOW WORLD”

From Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama, from Margaret Thatcher to Tony Blair, Shadow World reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade, the only business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives. Through the insights of whistleblowers, investigators, prosecutors, journalists, military and industry insiders, Shadow World unravels a number of the world’s largest and most corrupt arms deals. Ultimately the film reveals the real costs of war, the way the arms trade drives it, and how a defense industry that is supposed to enhance security instead gives us the exact opposite: a more dangerous world.

Year: 2017 | Directors: Johan Grimonprez, Andrew Feinstein, and Anadil Hossain | Duration: 90 min
