Disaster Capitalism Film

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Disaster Capitalism is a 2018 documentary directed by Thor Neureiter[1][2][3] that reveals the dark reality in the global aid and investment industry. Disaster Capitalism takes the viewer inside three countries, Haiti, Afghanistan and Papua New Guinea, to reveal how the cause and effect of globalised development and aid is shaping realities in these vulnerable nations. It's topical, controversial, edgy and far removed from what viewers see on their nightly news and daily websites.

Disaster Capitalism was based on the book “Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing out of Catastrophe” written by Australian-German investigative journalist Antony Loewenstein[4].

Disaster Capitalism was produced by Madeleine Hetherton-Miau and Rebecca Barry[5] from the award-winning production company Media Stockade [6][7]


“Disaster Capitalism is a ground-breaking documentary film about Bougainville, Haiti and Afghanistan, revealing the dark underbelly of the global aid and investment industry. The film offers important insights into a secret multi-billion dollar world by investigating how aid money is actually spent — or misspent. Prominent journalist and author Antony... Loewenstein... joins award-winning filmmaker Thor Neureiter on a four-year journey through the world of shady mining companies, corrupt and failing governments and resilient local communities.”[8]
