Pandora's Box

Find out where to watch on


For 15 years, Adam Curtis has concentrated on a cultural history behind the politics of the 20th century and beyond. In 1992, he made Pandora’s Box, six “fables” on the consequences (often dangerous) of political and technocratic rationality, especially when used to crush common sense and a clear reporting of the facts. Nothing concerns Curtis more than the way public relations and spin doctoring have become ways of masking the true nature of modern history - and nothing is so vital to the new forms of modern bureaucratic totalitarianism, the dulcet “order” that has come to fill the ground left by fascism and communism. In other words, the “enlightened” problem solving favored in the most advanced countries, but employed to obfuscate democratic impulses.
