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.

A challenging view of our world and economic system with a hint of hope
6 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rather long documentary balancing the sadness of our current world's order with a glimpse of how one could change the current course, I was moved and taken by this at the same time.

We are set to watch the world as seen by a consumer society where the few eat/consume but do not share most of the resources, how government tries to apply even more control to our lives, the desperate struggle of those who try to speak. In this first wave, we hear about 'Occupy', 'Anonymous', and 'Zeitgeist' but feel powerless. Then, we hear about the so many new ways and inventive approaches taken by small groups across the world to change what is creating great instabilities.

This is really an important documentary to watch and is not a classic bad/good but a philosophical reflection on what we stand for as a sociaty. Watch and dare to be challenged.
