Oncle Bernard – A Counter-Lesson in Economics

Oncle Bernard – A Counter-Lesson in Economics
reż. Richard Brouillette/Kanada, Hiszpania, 2015/79 min

Filmed in 2000 during the making of Encirclement – Neo-Liberalism Ensnares Democracy, this interview with Bernard Maris, aka Uncle Bernard, is a fascinating conversation with an independent thinker who was the economic analyst at Charlie Hebdo, assassinated with his colleagues last January. A tireless debunker of the myths that prop up an ever less transparent market economy, this peerless populariser of ideas had a vision of the world founded on social solidarity – a vision that needs exposure more than ever before. Keeping edits to a minimum, Richard Brouillette also includes candid off-camera moments whose warmth honours the man beyond the thinker, and with him the living spirit of Charlie.
