Film Details


Canada | 2012 | Jennifer Baichwal


Margaret Atwood’s book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth is the inspiration for this provocative new documentary from the maker of Manufactured Landscapes. The film uses case studies—a blood feud in Albania, the BP oil spill, et al.—to illustrate and investigate the various manifestations of debt in the world—not just economic but also societal, criminal, environmental, spiritual, and personal. With Atwood. “Brave…Give(s) concrete shape to an abstract discussion.” –Toronto Globe and Mail.
