is a 2016 BBC documentary by British filmmaker Adam Curtis. The film was released on 16 October 2016 on the BBC iPlayer. In the film, Curtis argues that since the 1970s, governments, financiers, and technological utopians have given up on the complex "real world" and built a simple "fake world" that is run by corporations and kept stable by politicians.
The film consists of nine chapters: 1975, The Human Bomb, Altered States, Acid Flashback, The Colonel, The Truth Is Out There, Managed Outcomes, A Cautionary Tale, and A World Without Power. (excerpt from its Wikipedia page
