Giancarlo's Recommendation

When I watched filmmaker Joshua Van Praag and Author Raoul Martinez documentary The Lottery of Birth i knew immediately that i wanted to distribute it. The most pragmatic and secular documentary in the vein of Adam Curtis/BBC, this doc will open your eyes on what it means to be free.

With a stellar cast bringing together leading activists, journalists, and the best minds in psychology, history and philosophy, the film explores a simple idea: The more we understand the limits on our freedom,the better placed we are to transcend them.

From birth onwards, our minds are a battleground of competing forces. The outcome of this battle determines the society we create. The Lottery of Birth looks at the cultural, educational and commercial forces that shape our identities, often in ways that limit both our personal and political freedom.

Do you shape the world or does the world shape you? Is freedom something we are born with or something we must work to attain? Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas, ‘The Lottery of Birth’ is going to make you think again about what it means to be free.
