An adaptation of Margaret Atwood's book examining the metaphor of indebtedness.
Longer than it needs to be, because of needlessly plodding shots of jail cells and landscapes. It's helpful to have arguments situated in their social and environmental context, but unnecessary to do so again and again. Makes some interesting points, although many are made relatively gently. Still capable of kindling a righteous anger in the viewer, though.
Very interesting doc that presents itself as a visual essay to Margaret Atwood's non-fiction book that looked at the human concept of debt in a theological, economic, and ecological context. Has convinced me I want to read her book...
