Summary
Director Astra Taylor's idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents, from ancient Athens's groundbreaking experiment in self-government to capitalism's roots in medieval Italy, from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor
