By Sandy Haksi
Coming soon to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkeley, San Diego, Portland OR, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis, Columbus OH, New Orleans, Washington DC, Philadelphia & Boston
SURVIVING PROGRESS is a stunning new feature documentary that connects the financial collapse, growing inequity, and the Wall Street oligarchy, with future technology, sustainability, and the fate of civilization.
Please spread the word as it's so important for films to do well on opening weekend in order to stay in theatres!! The film has already been a big success in Canada and we're thrilled to see it hit the big screen in the US.

SURVIVING PROGRESS is inspired by Ronald Wright’s bestseller A Short History of Progress. Filmmakers Mathieu Roy and Harold Crooks dig deep into human nature and patterns of history to challenge and redefine the very idea of progress.
For the last four years Mark Achbar has been the executive producer along with Vancouver colleague Betsy Carson on 10 documentaries made possible by the box office success of The Corporation. As Mark says:
"In light of the Occupy movement, that this film — 6 years in the making — is being released NOW is some kind of miracle of timing!"
