Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consumers


Directed by Erik Gandini
Sweden, 2003


Why is the lifestyle of consumerism a source of such rage today? How come the privilege of buying goods does not automatically lead to happiness? Why all this emptiness despite our wealth? Surplus approach is to portray this issue from an emotional rather than a factual perspective.
