Pots, Pans and Other Solutions (2012) - So much to learn from Icelanders' Revolution

The origin of what's been going on in the world now is here in Miguel Marques's film.

Thanks to "Bougainvillea Teatime" blogger's voluntary work, we can finally see the film with the Japanese subtitles too :).  Three year behind the release though.

Here's the copy from the original website Pots, Pans and Other Solutions.

Iceland, People Building a RevolutionJuly 14, 2012 by potspansdocumentary 
In Iceland, the first European country to wake up to an economic crash, people became aware that they could and should intervene in society and started demanding more democratic participation. 
The payment of bank debts by citizens went to referendum. The government was forced to create a Council to write a new constitution: a citizens’ group - without politicians, lawyers or university professors - who opened the discussion process to everybody and managed to approve by consensus a draft proposal. 
In Iceland, many citizens are now organized in associations and have substantial proposals for a society where everyone can participate. 
Let’s meet the Icelanders that the media refuse to talk about.

This documentary was idealized, conceived and produced by Miguel Marques, Yolanda Rienderhoff,  Pedro Bruno Carreira and LIGHTS ON(E). We had no sponsors whatsoever.

There's so much we can learn to change our part of the world to get back the Earth in our hands.  Iceland's politics, business world, media, education, etc. were so rotten just as ours, but they overcame the situation.

In the year of 2012, I was a little busy as we were told that my perfectly-healthy looking father's days were numbered.  The sudden cruel sentence was given from a brain doctor in June 20.
