A series of films by BAFTA-winning producer Adam Curtis that tells the story of the rise of today’s narrow idea of freedom. It will show how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today’s idea of freedom. This model was derived from ideas and techniques developed by nuclear strategists during the Cold War. It was then taken up by genetic biologists, anthropologists, radical psychiatrists and free market economists, until it became a new system of invisible control. With some strong language.

THE CENTURY OF THE SELF - Adam Curtis (BBC4, 2002)
Adam Curtis’ acclaimed series examines the rise of the all-consuming self against the backdrop of the Freud dynasty.
To many in both politics and business, the triumph of the self is the ultimate expression of democracy, where power has finally moved to the people. Certainly the people may feel they are in charge, but are they really? The Century of the Self tells the untold and sometimes controversial story of the growth of the mass-consumer society in Britain and the United States. How was the all-consuming self created, by whom, and in whose interests?
The Freud dynasty is at the heart of this compelling social history. Sigmund Freud, founder of psychoanalysis; Edward Bernays, who invented public relations; Anna Freud, Sigmund’s devoted daughter; and present-day PR guru and Sigmund’s great grandson, Matthew Freud.
Sigmund Freud’s work into the bubbling and murky world of the subconscious changed the world. By introducing a technique to probe the unconscious mind, Freud provided useful tools for understanding the secret desires of the masses. Unwittingly, his work served as the precursor to a world full of political spin doctors, marketing moguls, and society’s belief that the pursuit of satisfaction and happiness is man’s ultimate goal.
The Power of Nightmares by Adam Curtis
The Power of Nightmares, subtitled The Rise of the Politics of Fear, is a BBC documentary film series, written and produced by Adam Curtis. The series consists of three one-hour films, consisting mostly of a montage of archive footage with Curtis’s narration, which were first broadcast in the United Kingdom in late 2004 and have been subsequently aired in multiple countries and shown in several film festivals, including the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.
In May 2005, Adam Curtis was quoted as saying that 94% of e-mails to the BBC in response to the film were supportive. Entertainment Weekly described the film as “a fluid cinematic essay, rooted in painstakingly assembled evidence, that heightens and cleanses your perceptions” while Variety called it “a superb, eye-opening and often absurdly funny deconstruction of the myths and realities of global terrorism.” The San Francisco Chronicle had an equally enthusiastic view of the film and likened it to “a brilliant piece in the Atlantic Monthly that’s (thankfully) come to cinematic life.” The New York Times had a more skeptical review, unimpressed by efforts to compare attacks on Bill Clinton by American conservatives with Islamist revolutionary activities and claiming “its understanding of politics, geo- and national, can seem curiously thin.”
The film was awarded a BAFTA in the category of “Best Factual Series” in 2005. Additional awards were given by the Director’s Guild of Great Britain and the Royal Television Society.
