Kingdom of Survival
Directed by Marc Littler
~~ appearing in person

This unique, interdisciplinary film explores modern skepticism in America — it challenges the status quo. It takes us on a journey into the history of American dissident culture from Thoreau to the Beats, and from punk to radical politics. It uncovers provocative links between survivalist philosophy, ecumenical spirituality, radical political theory, and outlaw culture. We are invited into a thoughtful conversation with the likes of Noam Chomsky, Mark Mirabello, Ramsey Kanaan, Sasha Lilley, Mark Mirabello, Will Taylor, and the riveting final interview with beloved author, Joe Bageant. These unique thought leaders cast a rare shadow of doubt over our most blindly accepted American traditions. By remaining observantly agnostic to the subjects, the film is able to honestly investigate the physical and psychological practices of diverse individuals in a conflict-ridden and confused world. In a time of brainwashing corporate and political propaganda, Kingdom of Survival reunites us with the life-changing spirit of the outlaw highway. It is the director’s wake-up call to the sleeping, and rallying point for those who are already on this path of consigning the current political and social culture to the trash heap.
