||Synopsis: Politicians used to have the confidence to tell us stories that made sense of the chaos of world events. But now there are no big stories and politicians react randomly to every new crisis - leaving us bewildered and disorientated. Bitter Lake is a new, adventurous and epic film by Adam Curtis that explains why the big stories that politicians tell us have become so simplified that we can't really see the world any longer. The narrative goes all over the world, America, Britain, Russia and Saudi Arabia - but the country at the heart of it is Afghanistan. Because Afghanistan is the place that has confronted our politicians with the terrible truth - that they cannot understand what is going on any longer. The film reveals the forces that over the past thirty years rose up and undermined the confidence of politics to understand the world. And it shows the strange, dark role that Saudi Arabia has played in this. But Bitter Lake is also experimental. Curtis has taken the unedited rushes of...

This film marks a new era in online content from both one of the worlds
great broadcasters and filmmakers.
Rather than be constrained by the formats of television and convention
of breaking things up into mini-series (Curtis has already made several
of such landmarks), Adam Curtis has been given the freedom to make a
lengthy, challenging feature documentary that has gone straight to BBC

both in-itself but for breaking new ground and showing us what is
possible with the relatively new platform/medium.
