Ethos Genesis (2015) is an updated version of the highly acclaimed 2011 documentary film ETHOS directed by activist Pete McGrain and hosted by Woody Harrelson.
Pete McGrain teamed up with Woody Harrelson in order to reach a wider audience, but the film had to be cooled down for broadcast networks before it could be released.
Our 2015 edit of the film replaces Woody Harrelson with the hard hitting footage from the unreleased original, but keeps the original material produced for the final release, as well as adding new footage that leads to a more powerful conclusion.
With interviews from some of the world’s most influential critical thinkers, including Noam Chomsky, Chalmers Johnson, Michael Moore and Howard Zinn (to name just a few), it looks at the facts surrounding the formation of our ethos.
It emphasizes the need for us to re-evaluate our ethos – our fundamental beliefs and values – and consider that the faith we have in our current way of doing things may be severely misguided.
It asks us to think about whether we should be supporting a system based on permanent growth on a finite planet and, ultimately, it proposes that we can choose to stop war, environmental destruction, social injustice and the future consequences of mass population surveillance by questioning the ethicacy of governmental and corporate actions and then using our power as the consumers within the system to stop supporting the system as it currently stands.
