Engels:
This tribute to the human imagination takes the form of an indictment of hierarchical education systems aimed at competition and quantifiable results. This documentary essay quotes education expert Sir Ken Robinson at the start: “I believe that we systematically destroy this capacity [for imagination] in our children and in ourselves.” The film identifies similar complaints from China to France. Yang Dongping, educational science professor at the Institute of Technology in Beijing, regrets the rise of market-thinking in the Chinese education system. “Today, everyone is sucked into a spiralling vortex of competition.” On the other side, German education expert Andreas Schleicher is in favor of the international standardization of student testing. His arguments are rebutted by German brain researcher Gerald Hüther, French creative educator Arno Stern – whose son André never attended school but ended up doing just fine as a guitar builder – and Pablo Pineda Ferrer, star of the 2009 feature Yo también and the first European student with Down syndrome to graduate from a university. In between the interviews, the documentary intersperses images of rigid and repetitive exteriors and interiors, and scenes of nature and children at play. In the end, they’re they’re the ones this is all about.

Nederlands:
Een ode aan de menselijke verbeelding, in de vorm van een aanklacht tegen hiërarchisch, op competitie en kwantificeerbare resultaten gericht onderwijs. Deze essayistische documentaire neemt de stelling van onderwijsexpert Sir Ken Robinson als uitgangspunt: we beschikken over de buitengewone kracht van de verbeelding, maar dit talent vernietigen we systematisch in onze kinderen en in onszelf. De film treft van China tot Frankrijk dezelfde klachten.
Regisseur Erwin Wagenhofer benadert grote thema’s van onze tijd op een originele en radicale manier. Hij stelt in Alphabet de vraag hoe we in de huidige crisissen terecht zijn gekomen. Waarom zijn we ongelukkig terwijl we alles hebben? Is de opzet en kwaliteit van ons onderwijs een deel van het probleem?

Not since the invention of the Internet has there been such a disruptive technology as Bitcoin. Bitcoin’s early pioneers sought to blur the lines of sovereignty and the financial status quo. After years of underground development Bitcoin grabbed the attention of a curious public, and the ire of the regulators the technology had subverted. After landmark arrests of prominent cyber criminals Bitcoin faces its most severe adversary yet, the very banks it was built to destroy. An ideological battle is underway between fringe utopists and mainstream capitalism and this film shows the players who are defining how this technology will shape our lives.
