  • Capitalism - An ambitious and accessible six-part series that looks at both the history of ideas and the social forces that have shaped the capitalist world.

  • E

  • Episode 1 - Capitalism is much more complex than the vision Adam Smith laid out in The Wealth of Nations. Indeed, it predates Smith by centuries and took root in the practices of colonialism and the slave trade.

  • Episode 2 - Adam Smith was both economist and moral philosopher. But his work on morality is largely forgotten, leading to tragic distortions that have shaped our global economic system.

  • Episode 3 - The roots of today's global trade agreements lie in the work of stockbroker David Ricardo and demographer Thomas Malthus. Together, they would restructure society in the image of the market.

  • F

  • The Forgotten Space - Allan Sekula and NoŽl Burch investigate maritime trade, the global supply chain and 21st-century capitalism.

  • I

  • An Injury To One - Reconstructs the long-forgotten murder of union organizer Frank Little in Butte, Montana, and draws a connection between the unsolved murder of Little, and the attempted murder of the town itself.

  • M

  • Mondovino: The Series - This multi-generation, globe-trotting saga covers not only the entire gamut of wine making, but wine's place in a treacherously globalized and hyper-marketed world.

    O

  • Our Daily Bread - A spectacular visual essay composed of epic tableaus, a haunting vision of our modern food industry, and the methods and technology utilized for mass production.

  • R

  • Red Persimmons - A visually elegant paean to the cultivation and harvesting of the sweet red fruit, and the disappearance of a traditional way of life in rural Japan.

  • S

  • The Storytellers

  • U

  • The Universal Clock - Is there an alternative to run-of-the-mill TV? The film introduces us to Peter Watkins, who for the last three decades has proven that quality TV may be made without compromise.
