Catastroika is a 2012 documentary film about the catastrophic consequences of the privatization of the public sector. The title comes from the combination of the words ‘catastrophe‘ and ‘Troika‘ (the tripartite committee led by the European Commission with the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, that organised the financial rescues of Greece, Ireland and Portugal).
The documentary uncovers the forthcoming results of the current sell-off of the Greek public assets, demanded in order to face the country’s enormous sovereign debt. Turning to the examples of London, Paris, Berlin, Moscow and Rome, Catastroika predicts what will happen, if the model imposed in these areas is imported in a country under international financial tutelage.
The same producers have also created a 2011 documentary Debtocracy about the causes of the debt crisis and proposes solutions, hidden by the government and the dominant media, viewed by millions of people around the world.
Just like Debtocracy, Catastroika is co-produced by the public, which contributed both financially and with ideas to its creation.
