Generation Like (2014)

Today, with the help of social media, teens are able to interact directly with their culture — artists, celebrities, movies, brands and even one another — in ways never before possible.

Frontline correspondent Douglas Rushkoff  explores how the teen quest for identity and connection has migrated to social media — and exposes the game of cat-and-mouse that corporations are playing with these young consumers. It’s an evolving and complicated relationship between teens and the companies that are working hard to target them.

Teen use of social media sometimes includes attempts to attract attention by sharing instances of outrageous, provocative, or dangerous behavior. Therefore, Generation Like includes moments that involve potentially offensive language and sexually suggestive behavior and language.

Master of the Universe (2013)

He was one of the Top-Investmentbankers in Germany. He made a million profit per day. Now he is sitting in an empty bank building in the financial center of Frankfurt and talks. A frightening insight in a megalomaniac, quasi-religious parallel world behind mirrored windows.

Zum ersten Mal packt ein echter Insider des internationalen Finanzgewerbes aus, einer der ehemals führenden Investmentbanker Deutschlands. Rainer Voss, der in seiner aktiven Zeit locker mit Millionen hantierte, erzählt aus eigener Anschauung, wie es in der glitzernden Finanzwelt wirklich zugeht, von all ihren Abgründen, Skrupellosigkeiten und quasi-religiösen Gesetzmäßigkeiten. Hat sich seit der globalen Finanzkrise etwas geändert? Voss’ Ausblick gibt Grund zur Beunruhigung…

Dokumentarec o svetu denarja, v katerem nekdaj super uspešni investicijski bankir Rainer Voss v izpraznjeni poslovni stolpnici sredi Frankfurta razlaga skrivnosti in nečedne posle kapitalizma. Gre za »šnelkurs« iz brezobzirnega podjetništva, pogoltnosti po dobičku za vsako ceno, megalomanije, tekmovalne nemoralnosti in nezmožnosti učenja iz lastnih napak. Voss osvetljuje lastno uspešno pot od sredine osemdesetih let naprej in jo projicira na globalno sliko, v kateri je bančništvo v zadnjih tridesetih letih postalo tako kompleksno, zapleteno in prepleteno, da se zdijo vprašanja o reševanju krize nerešljiva.

»Film govori zase; finančni sistem ima velik vpliv na naše življenje in do morebitnih sprememb v prihodnje imam precej ciničen odnos. Vedno nam ponujajo enake rešitve, zgodovina in odločitve sem nam vseskozi ponavljajo: ‘Preveliki smo, da bi nam spodletelo; preveliki, da bi šli v zapor.’ […] Pomembneje kot zapreti bankirje se mi zdi spremeniti svet, si postaviti vprašanja, se pogledati v ogledalo. Smo sokrivi za vse ekscese in zločine finančnikov? Mar ne odvračamo pogleda, namesto da bi iskali rešitve?« (Marc Bauder)

How You Really Make Decisions (2013)

Horizon uncovers the truth about how you really make decisions.

Every day you make thousands of decisions, big and small, and behind all them is a powerful battle in your mind, pitting intuition against logic.

This conflict affects every aspect of your life – from what you eat to what you believe, and especially to how you spend your money.

And it turns out that the intuitive part of your mind is a lot more powerful than you may realise.
