ABOUT THE FILM
Hosted by twice Oscar nominated actor and activist Woody Harrelson Ethos lifts the lid on a
Pandora's box of systemic issues that guarantee failure in almost every aspect of our lives; from
the environment to democracy and our own personal liberty:
From terrifying conflicts of interests in politics to unregulated corporate power, to a media in
the hands of massive conglomerates and a military industrial complex that virtually owns
our representatives.With interviews from some of todays leading thinkers and source material from the finest documentary film makers of our times Ethos examines and unravels these complex relationships.
Our system is working against the public good. Our democracy is broken. But we can't change
anything until we understand how our systems operate and what forces are actually set against us.
The news is not all bad, however. Ethos offers a deceptively simple but powerful solution.
We can fix this system. We can live in peace and justice in a clean environment. The steps we need
to take would improve our lives instantly and are not difficult. They are very simple but extremely
powerful. But...it does take our involvement. You and I learning the facts, taking responsibility and
then acting accordingly. We can defeat the apathy and hopelessness that says 'nothing can be done'
and take the future back into our own hands.
