A jolly, Mussolini-loving agent, an aspiring martial artist/singer, a paparazzi wrangler-cum-outlaw, and Silvio Berlusconi, the prime minister of Italy, are just a few of the outlandish personalities in this documentary that explores the mad world of Italian television. In a country obsessed with game shows and reality television, whose leader owns a controlling stake in much of its media, what sort of life is worth living and what sort of example is worth following? Videocracy quietly asks these questions while casually observing its subjects go to auditions, attend lavish parties, and get thrown into jail, yielding jaw-dropping answers.

Filmography: Sacrifiico: Who Betrayed Che Guevara? (01), Gitmo—The New Rules of War (05).

In English and Italian.

Sponsored by Nel Centro.
