The Foucault Project

Is our turbulent world at a breaking point or, a turning point? In 1976, controversial and celebrated philosopher Michel Foucault presented a sensational lecture on power that predicted our current moment of chaos and conflict, describing it as a perpetual war waged through racism, violence and technology. He gave this war a name: biopwer. Now, what Foucault described four decades ago as a threat is in full fury around the world. This film, presented as a hybrid-reality (a mix of performance and documentary), is at once a bitter fable and a fever dream bringing forward Foucault’s challenge that later is too late and that the time to act is now. It offers an alternative: do not resist…oppose!

Assholes: A Theory

Some grapple with the moral challenges of treating other human beings decently. Others are just…assholes. “A new- born boy in the US, Italy or Israel is much more likely to live the life of an asshole than a newborn boy in Japan, Norway or Canada”says Prof. Aaron James in his NY Times bestseller. Intellectually provocative an existentially necessary John Walker explores James’ theories and recommendations using clips sourced from Hollywood and news archives, combined with vox pop and ruminations with key observers of asshole-dom. The frustration of dealing with assholes – in the workplace, in government, at home – affects everyone. In an age of rampant narcissism, the time has come for this entertaining and insightful film.
