Do you shape the world or does the world shape you? Is freedom something we are born with or something we must work to attain? Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas and information, The Lottery of Birth is going to make you think again about what it means to be free.
From birth onwards, our minds are a battleground of competing forces. The outcome of this battle determines the society we create. This is a film about the cultural, educational, political, and commercial forces that shape our identities, often in ways that limit both our personal and political freedom. Whether you're into philosophy, economics, or simply being a better person than you were born to be, you can't afford to miss this film.
