Shadow World (15) & panel discussion / trafodaeth banel

  • Director: Johan Grimonprez
  • Cast: Andrew Feinstein, David Leigh, Helen Garlick
  • Country: USA
  • Year: 2016
  • Running time: 90'

A smart, hard-hitting look at the global arms trade, the vast sums of money that are made and the corruption that creates. Fascinating interviews reveal the shocking realities of Britain’s central role in this dirty trade that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives.

Based on Andrew Feinstein’s globally acclaimed book this is extremely good at clearly presenting information and then showing the consequences. Masterfully edited and well illustrated with pertinent clips, this deftly weaves the multiple strands of its global story into a compelling case against the guilty parties. In the hope that if we better understand what really goes on, we can see through the horror, and create a better future.

. . . superb, gut-punching exploration of the global arms trade is the sort of catalyst to energize politically-minded viewers.” Variety
