SubMedia’s End of Civilization Tour: “END:CIV” with Filmmaker Frank Lopez

April 22, 2011 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

This culture will eat you alive…Fight back, resist and survive! If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water, fouled the air and contaminated the food supply, would you resist? If creatures from outer space made the water so poisonous you wouldn’t dream of drinking it, would you try to stop them? If monsters released toxic chemicals that caused cancer in the people you love, would you fight back? These aren’t idle questions. It’s happening now – except there are no aliens. The culture that’s cradled us since birth is a killer. Journalist Frank Lopez presents his new film END:CIV, exploring our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. END:CIV documents the heroism of those who confront it head-on. Rapid-fire video-game graphics, interviews, war footage and satire mock the excesses of the global economic system, even as it implodes around us.
