Storyline

THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH is the first in a three-part documentary series entitled 'Creating Freedom' exploring the relationship between freedom, power and control in Western democracies. The series draws together interviews with some of the world's leading intellectuals, journalists and activists to offer an alternative perspective on today's society and the future we're creating. We do not choose to exist, or the environment we grow up in. Our starting point in life is one of passive reliance on forces over which we have no control. THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH shows that from birth onwards our minds are a battleground of competing forces: familial, educational, cultural, and professional. The outcome of this battle not only determines who we become, but the society that we create. Written by Anonymous

Huge Waste of Time
5 June 2014 | by marycullisonSee all my reviews

Two hours of my life I can never get back. Almost feel bad for these self-important people who are trying to justify their own success. Would almost be funny if I wasn't fully aware that many will buy into the crap in this movie. Trying to make people who have less or have nothing feel that it is okay, it wasn't their fault. They had no control over the outcome of life. These are obviously people with out faith in a creator and are to self absorbed to even consider that there is a God. While there are a few moments of truth in the movie ( the fact that we often create the "stories" of our history to portray what we want) those moments are few and far between. Don't waste your time.
