Indiqué sur la jaquette : En 2007, Naomi Klein publiait "La Stratégie du choc". Un traumatisme collectif, une guerre, un coup d'état, une catastrophe naturelle, une attaque terroriste plongent chaque individu dans un état de choc. Après le choc, nous redevenons des enfants, désormais plus enclins à suivre les leaders qui prétendent nous protéger. S'il est une personne à avoir compris très tôt ce phénomène, c'est Milton Friedman. Friedman, soutenant l'ultralibéralisme, conseilla aux hommes politiques d'imposer immédiatement après crise des réformes économiques douloureuses avant même que les victimes n'aient eu le temps de se ressaisir. Il qualifiait cette méthode de traitement de choc. "Seule une crise réelle ou supposée, produit un vrai changement." Milton Friedman, Prix Nobel d'économie en 1976. Naomi Klein la qualifie de "stratégie du choc". En utilisant de nombreuses images d'archives, Michael Winterbottom et Mat Whitecross démontrent la puissance du texte de Naomi Klein et la nécessité de résister

Moving to Mars : [a million miles from Burma]( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the military coup of 1962, the Karen people of Burma have been a persecuted minority. Around 150,000 of them now live in refugee camps over the border in Thailand, which means that their journey is far from over. In Moving to Mars: a million miles from Burma, Mat Whitecross, who directed The Road To Guantánamo together with Michael Winterbottom, follows two Karen families who are moving to Sheffield, England. Thaw Htoo studied to be an engineer and married his piano teacher, but he cannot show us his diplomas -- together with his house, they went up in flames. Jo-Kae, a simple farmer, helped people escape from the junta, and his wife teaches kindergarten in the camp. In Moving to Mars: a million miles from Burma, politics are always in the background. Whitecross first gets us familiar with village life in the camp -- "a human community," as one person puts it. After the tears of saying goodbye, we can truly feel the culture shock. The adults are nervous, hopeful, and uncertain, while the children eagerly take everything in with their curious eyes. The story really begins in the row house in Sheffield, which at first seems like a paradise. There is cheerfulness and boredom, friendships flag, a teenage son finds his own way, and the farmer who speaks no English seems to find his niche faster than the uprooted engineer
