Dear Mark,

While they not documentaries that strictly cover the anti-globalization
movement, three recent releases contain powerful critiques of recent global
economic trends, from economics professors, merchants in Haiti, artists and
others...

The Spectre of Hope
With Sebastião Salgado and John Berger
Directed by Paul Carlin

"THE SPECTRE OF HOPE is both a remarkable conversation, between Brazilian
economist-photographer Sebastião Salgado and British art critic-novelist
John Berger, and a stunning portrait (in Salgado's pictures) of what
globalization really looks like in Rwanda, Mexico, Mozambique, Sudan and
erstwhile Yugoslavia." - John Leonard, New York Magazine

Profit and Nothing But!
A Film by Raoul Peck

"Superb! A complete and thought provoking analysis of the current global
economic system… [PROFIT AND NOTHING BUT!] provides important insight into
the realities of today's global economy, and does so in a manner that is
simple in its explanation, yet far-reaching in its conclusions. Raoul Peck
has produced an excellent work, which serves as a valuable tool for any and
all who question the validity of capitalism as a satisfactory global
economic system." - Economic Justice News

For Man Must Work - Or the End of Work
Directed by Jean-Claude Bürger
A National Film Board of Canada Production

FOR MAN MUST WORK raises crucial questions and suggests rethinking the
future. Besides personal stories, we also hear from experts such as
Vivianne Forrester, author of "The Economic Horror"; Jeremy Rifkin,
American economist and author of "The End of Work"; sociologist Ricardo
Petrella; Ignacio Ramonet, editor-in-chief of Le Monde diplomatique; and
Jacques Attali, author of "Dictionary of the 21st Century" and former
president of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. They
have no illusions--they think the 21st century is getting off to a very bad
start.
