Based on Ronald Wright's bestseller, "A Short History of Progress," about the concept of progress in our modern world, guiding us through a sweeping but detailed survey of the major "progress traps" facing our civilization in the arenas of technology, economics, consumption and the environment. Featuring powerful arguments from contemporary thinkers such as Jane Goodall, Margaret Atwood and Stephen Hawking. The film examines the pivotal mistakes societies have made throughout history, and in the process reveals the big-picture perspective of those progress traps treacherously embedded in our own.
