A Short History of Planet Malfunction
The May Movies and More screening of Global Haywire is a wholly original approach to one of the most important questions of our time: why have we reached the present crisis point between East and West?
Written, directed and animated by Academy Award-winning filmmaker and cartoonist Bruce Petty, Global Haywire sees a committee gathered of real and animated figures to investigate what has gone wrong with the world and learn some things about the past. Notable thinkers like Arundathi Roi, George Monbiot, the journalist and writer Robert Fisk and Gore Vidal are interviewed as are students from both the western and eastern worlds.
A wealth of archival footage and issues from globalisation, to diminishing oil reserves and terrorism, are thrown into this animated mixing pot. This ambitious film wears its outraged heart on its sleeve as it points the finger at colonialism and capitalism as the source of the world's ills. Petty's brilliant satirical creation suggests that madness is indeed at the heart of our global situation, and takes just a touch of visual mayhem to put the point across.
The Movies and More screening of Global Haywire is on at The Events Centre on Sunday May 10 at 4:00pm. Tickets can be purchased by calling (07) 5491 4240 or directly from the Box Office. Ticket prices are $8.00 for members and $14.00 for non members.
