Program text

Multi-billion dollar fund manager Eric Packer glides through Manhattan in his limousine. He wants to visit the hairdresser. His world is made up of data that deliver new stock prices every nanosecond. Traffic stops – activists’ banners herald a spectre haunting the world: It’s called capitalism. David Cronenberg’s adaptation of the novel by Don DeLillo contemplates the potentiation of financial speculation, the attack of the future on the present, and the desire for a final crash, which would allow a new beginning.
