0

Michael Winterbottom’s powerful new film, The Emperor’s New Clothes, starring comedian Russell Brand and featuring several prominent tax justice campaigners is screening in cinemas now.  You can also organise your own film screening here.

The film provides a powerful critique of how the failed economic policies initiated in the 1980s by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher have harmed the lives of working people while benefiting a tiny elite of wealth extractors.  The film argues that things can change and provides powerful solutions for how to move beyond neo-liberalism.

In the following Taxcast special Naomi Fowler interviews film director Michael Winterbottom about the reasons he made the film, what he hopes it might achieve, and what he thinks of TJN.
