Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consumers DVD, Surplus someone else said “is a 2003 Swedish documentary film on consumerism and globalization, created by director Erik Gandini and editor Johan Söderberg. It opens with footage of the protests at the 27thG8summit in Genoa and centers on the views of anarcho-primitivistJohn Zerzan. Zerzan has written several books and numerous articles questioning various aspects of civilization taken for granted - such as time, progress, culture, technology, even language and mathematics. He argues that peaceful protest has almost no impact. People don't take it seriously, he says. It doesn't "deserve" to be taken seriously. He advocates "property damage" and "property destruction." While condemning violence against people, he claims "you can't violate a building or a window." He favors dismantling technology and returning to a way of life in-tune with nature. The documentary relies heavily on fast-paced audio-visual collage techniques, resembling MTV videos and commercials. It uses lip-synching to subvert the ideas of those in power, like having George W. Bush speak for Adbusters or Fidel Castro mouth the words of MicrosoftCEOSteve Ballmer: "I love this company! Yeah!" It also uses music to emphasize action.”
