Global Heywire

Directed by Bruce Petty

Oscar-winning cartoonist Petty’s latest film is a truly unique semi-animated documentary questioning whether and why we have reached such a drastic stage in the relationship between East and West.

Tariq Ali, Chomsky, Gore Vidal, Arundhati Roy and Robert Fisk, mix with students, experts and even cartoon characters in this illuminating debate on terrorism, oil crises and globalisation. Petty’s anarchic trademark animation perfectly addresses the complexities of a world in meltdown.
