As we gear up to the General Election, ArtHouse brings back four
great films that have had political resonance with our audiences.
Having spent 25 years making films defending ordinary people, Moore is now one of the 100 most influential people alive according to Time Magazine. Moore now follows up Capitalism: A Love Story with Where to Invade Next, in which the formidable filmmaker tours the world to investigate what the USA could learn from other countries.
A 59 year old carpenter recovering from a heart attack, befriends a single mum and her two kids as they navigate their way through the kafkaesque impersonal benefits system. With equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair. Heartfelt and emotional until the end.
After dedicated service in the Great War, a Jewish barber spends years in an army hospital recovering from his wounds, unaware of the simultaneous rise of fascist dictator Adenoid Hynkel and his anti-Semitic policies. When the barber, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Hynkel, returns to his quiet neighborhood, he is stunned by the brutal changes and recklessly joins a beautiful girl and her neighbors in rebelling.
The untold story of the biggest protest in human history, and how it changed the world. On February 15th, 2003, over 15 million people marched through the streets of 800 cities around the world to try to avert the war against Iraq. Some estimated the numbers were as high as 30 million people.
