L'Alternativa Parallel / Panorama / Oncle Bernard. L'Anti-leçon d'économie


Economist Bernard Maris, aka "Oncle Bernard", was killed during the Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris, on 7 January 2015. This fascinating interview with him was filmed in March 2000 as part of the documentary Encirclement. Frank and unvarnished, this is a true "counter-lesson in economics" in which the director gives centre stage to Maris's vibrant, incisive and mischievous words of dissent.


Richard Brouillette (Montreal, 1970) is a film producer, director, editor and programmer. His films include Too Much Is Enough (1995) and Encirclement: Neoliberalism Ensnares Democracy (2008), coproduced with the Barcelona-based production company Ando Liado.
