Do you shape the world or does the world shape you? We don't choose to exist, or the environment in which we grow up. Our starting point in life is one of passive reliance on forces over which we have no control. From birth onwards, our minds are a battleground of competing forces - familial, educational, cultural, economic, corporate and political - which determine not only who we become, but also the society we create. Featuring leading thinkers from around the world, this documentary introduces key ideas that Raoul Martinez has gone on to develop in his acclaimed new book, Creating Freedom . The film is co-produced and directed by Martinez and Joshua van Praag.

" I was quite blown away. A lot of bracing, tangential and uncomfortable thought. And it looks and sounds beautiful ." Colin Firth
