Do you shape the world or does the world shape you? Is freedom something we are born with or something we must work to attain? Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas and information THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH is going to make you think again about what it means to be free.
From birth onwards our minds are a battleground of competing forces. The outcome of this battle determines the society we create. This is a film about the cultural, educational, political and commercial forces that shape our worldviews, often in ways that limit both our personal and political freedom. Whether you’re into philosophy, economics or simply being a better person than you were born to be, you can’t afford to miss this film.
From directors Raoul Martinez and Joshua van Praag comes the first installment in the 'Creating Freedom' series. Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas, 'The Lottery of Birth' is going to make you think again about what it means to be free. With a stellar cast bringing together leading activists, journalists, and the best minds in psychology, history and philosophy, it explores a simple idea: the more we understand the limits on our freedom, the better placed we are to transcend them.
