You’ve Been Trumped (2011) 95 mins. Dir. Anthony Baxter

“In this David and Goliath story for the 21st century, a group of proud Scottish homeowners take on celebrity tycoon Donald Trump as he buys up one of Scotland’s last wilderness areas to build a golf resort.
Donald Trump has called You’ve Been Trumped ‘a failure’ (no doubt a good sign) and the local residents featured in the film have been branded ‘a national embarrassment for Scotland’. But they have inspired sold out cinema audiences around the world with their extraordinary dignity, and determination to stand up for Scotland’s environment and our planet.”

Encirclement: Neoliberalism Ensnares Democracy (2008) 160 mins. Dir. Richard Brouillette

“Drawing upon the thinking and analyses of renowned intellectuals, this documentary sketches a portrait of neoliberal ideology and examines the various mechanisms used to impose its dictates throughout the world.
Neoliberalism’s one-size-fits-all dogmas are well known: deregulation, reducing the role of the State, privatization, limiting inflation rather than unemployment, etc. In other words, depoliticizing the economy and putting it into the hands of the financial class. And these dogmas are gradually settling into our consciousness because they’re being broadcast across a vast and pervasive network of propaganda. But behind the ideological smokescreen, the neat concepts of natural order and the harmony of interests in a free market, what is really going on?
