DocHouse: Shadow World

Directed by Johan Grimonprez and based on Andrew Feinstein's globally acclaimed book The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, the film reveals how the international trade in weapons - with the complicity of governments and intelligence agencies, investigative and prosecutorial bodies, weapons manufacturers, dealers and agents - fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracy and creates widespread suffering.

The film ultimately reveals the real cost of war, the way the arms trade drives it and how the weapons of war are now being turned against the citizens of liberal democracies. In the hope that in understanding how our realties are being constructed, audiences may see through this horror, and create a better future.
