Résumé: Documentaire. S'inspirant du livre "A short history of progress" de Ronald Wright, ce documentaire entreprend d'explorer comment le progrès et ses pièges ont servi puis desservi la race humaine, de la période préhistorique à nos jours. Divers experts, dont Wright lui-même, l'astrophysicien Stephen Hawking, la primatologue Jane Goodall et le généticien écologiste David Suzuki, sonnent l'alarme au sujet des effets pervers du progrès, qui menacent l'avenir de l'humanité: surconsommation, pompage des ressources naturelles de la planète par des multinationales à la recherche du profit à court terme, dérives d'un système capitaliste trop déréglementé, crise de la dette, fossé croissant entre les riches et les pauvres, etc. [(c) Médiafilm].

"À chaque année au Québec, 25 000 signalements d'enfants battus, abandonnés ou abusés sexuellement sont retenus par la Direction de la protection de la jeunesse. Et près de 40% des bébés qui meurent dans la province décèdent à cause de la violence de leurs parents. Cette situation explique le fait que près de 30000 enfants soient pris en charge par la DPJ jusqu'à l'âge de 18 ans. Mais cet organisme d'État est-il en mesure de répondre adéquatement aux besoins des jeunes? Le journaliste et documentariste Paul Arcand présente les témoignages d'enfants et d'adultes victimes d'abus de toutes sortes, et interroge politiciens, travailleurs sociaux et membres de la magistrature sur leur perception du problème. En outre, Arcand dénonce les incuries d'un système bureaucratique qui ne semble pas toujours se préoccuper du mieux-être de ceux dont ils ont la charge."-- Site web de cinoche.com
