Peter Kropotkin: The Coming Revolution
A short documentary film compiling the essential thoughts of anarchist-communism, in words of the Russian anarchist writer and revolutionary Piotr Kropotkin. It opens with a vague feeling that all forms of social arrangement must be questioned without any broad vision for what could replace it. What follows is a summary of the idea of the free reorganisation of production and distribution, a concept that developed within the anarchist milieu following the Commune of Paris. The film ends by highlighting the problem that these phantasies are currently limited to only very small numbers of people, whereas, to become a reality, they necessarily require the will and effort of the vast majority of the global producers.
