This film explores the concept of progress in our modern world, guiding us through the major "progress traps" facing our civilization in the arenas of technology, economics, consumption, and the environment.  Featuring powerful arguments from an extraordinary range of visionaries, this enlightening and visually spectacular film covers the progress traps that destroyed past civilizations and brings to light those that lie treacherously embedded in our own.  It includes observations by such renowned thinkers as Margaret Atwood, Jane Goodall, and Stephen Hawking.

In this big-picture video, anthropogenic climate disruption is a major area of focus.
