Storyline

Owned & Operated is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the Internet. Showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control. But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system... and fear in those who are pampered by it.

Great summary of what is wrong with the world we live in, but also points the way to solutions.
30 July 2012 | by (Chelmsford, England) – See all my reviews

Only the most self deluded would fail to recognize that something has gone very wrong with the way that the world is supposed to be.

This film draws together the main message most recently associated with Occupy but also shared by many other movements such as Anonymous, Transition, the Zeitgeist Movement and thousands if not millions of lesser known groups of concerned humans.

Watch it on Youtube or download the files to 'burn' a DVD of your own to share with friends. How about even going as far as making a few copies to spread around your neighborhood - charity shops, libraries and other local organizations who would appreciate the very very urgent wake up call this film represents?
