Money

Australia, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Animation)

Bruce Petty's satirical analysis of how money has evolved through the ages. We observe crashes, booms, wars, awesome socialist experiments and the world shattering efforts of the wealthy to make more of 'it'. We ultimately realize that we are no longer in control and that 'money is making the decisions'.
