Hvorfor er vi så besatt av behovet for økonomisk vekst?
Vekst er målestokken for alle samfunn og forteller om de er vellykkede eller ikke, men må vi ha vekst for å skape utvikling og gode samfunn? Og hva skjer med kapitalismen hvis vi ikke har vekst?

SYSTEM ERROR (2018)
A film by Florian Opitz
Why are we so obsessed with economic growth, despite knowing that perpetual growth will kill us in the end? SYSTEM ERROR looks for answers to this principal contradiction of our time and considers global capitalism from the perspective of those who run it.

This is the first time SYSTEM ERROR is screened in Norway.
The film screening is a part of the conference Rethinking Sustainability and in collaboration with Oslo Dokumentarkino (The Oslo Documentary Cinema).

The documentary film director Florian Opitz was born in 1973 in Saarbrücken and grew up in the tranquil little town of Baden-Baden, where he whiled away his time as a boy scout and later as a punk, before embarking on a masters degree in history, psychology, and English and American literature.
He ended up in television by chance and has worked in the industry since 1998 as a documentary writer and director. Florian Opitz made his cinema debut with the political and internationally acclaimed documentary film The Big Sellout (2007), which clinched the Adolf Grimme Award in 2009 and was screened at over 40 international film festivals.
