As advances in technology and communication make the planet seem to shrink under our feet, commerce and culture clash with greater frequency. Though there is an upside to increasing the goods and services available, the process seems to be to the benefit of a few and the detriment of many. Films found here explore the far-reaching effects of increasingly interconnected populations, including the effects of free trade, outsourcing, corporate control over natural resources, microenterprise, migration, the global drug trade and the effects of nuclear proliferation. Watch these films and decide for yourself: what are the costs and benefits of globalization?
