Surviving Progress: Humanitys ascent is often measured by the speed of progress. But what if progress is actually spiraling us downwards, towards collapse? Ronald Wright, whose best-seller, A Short History Of Progress inspired SURVIVING PROGRESS, shows how past civilizations were destroyed by progress traps - alluring technologies and belief systems that serve immediate needs, but ransom the future. As pressure on the worlds resources accelerates and financial elites bankrupt nations, can our globally-entwined civilization escape a final, catastrophic progress trap? With potent images and illuminating insights from thinkers who have probed our genes, our brains, and our social behaviour, this requiem to progress-as-usual also poses a challenge: to prove that making apes smarter isnt an evolutionary dead-end.

Actors: David Suzuki, Jane Goodall, Margaret Atwood, Ming Chen, Robert Wright, Stephen Hawking,
