Videocracy

Directors: Erik Gandini
Italy / Sweden
English, Italian with subtitles
80 minutes min

Synopsis:
Shockingly relevant and precisely crafted, Erik Gandini's documentary portrays the relationships between Italy's political elite and its powerful media empire. As Gandini puts it, "President Silvio Berlusconi has created a perfect system of TV entertainment and politics." With an eerily fitting soundtrack to guide it along, Videocracy exhibits firsthand the dangers of government-television cohabitation.
