Thomas Toivonen’s Dead Society (2007, 55 min) is based on an interview with prominent anarcho-primitivist John Zerzan. Using a collage of science fiction film, animal liberation front actions, footage of protest and riots, ethnographic film and much more, Toivonen presents a dark vision of the problems we face. Dead Society offers a sometimes harsh D.I.Y. aesthetic in stark contrast to the slick professionalism of many documentaries. Toivonen argues against industrial society, factories, animal experimentation, “green” technologies such as wind-power, and the left. Dead Society is controversial and jarring, but never boring. It will leave you thinking, something most films fail to do.
