Surplus explores the destructive nature of consumer culture. Against a backdrop of cynical world leaders, corporate captains and Microsoft fanatics the film puts the controversial anti-globalisation guru John Zerzan, whose call for property damage has inspired many to take to the streets. An intense visual odyssey filmed over three years in eight countries, finding links between the explosive anti-globalisation riots of Genoa, $7000 sex dolls to George W's infamous "just keep shopping" speech. Twenty per cent of the world is gobbling up 80% of its resources. The stunning editing and cinematography turns the statistics into an unforgettable emotional experience.
