In cooperation with the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre at the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI) and Bergen International Film Festival (BIFF) GRIP is proud to host a panel debate after a screening of the movie Breaking Social by Fredrik Gertten.


Breaking Social is a critical and inspiring documentary about societal injustice. While all societies are based on the idea of social contract, the current societal injustices marked by kleptocracy, extractivism, corruption and growing inequalities point to a severely broken social contract. Hear researchers at GRIP and Chr. Michelsen Institute’s take on how we can move towards positive change, through anti-corruption initiatives and reducing inequality.


Join us for a film screening and a conversation about inequality, corruption and social contract on Monday 23rd of October.


The movie screening starts at 12:20 in Bergen Kino.  The screening will be followed by a panel discussion at 14:15 in Kulturhuset in Bergen with Guillaume Nicaise (U4), Daniela Cepeda Cuadrado (CMI), Aled Williams (CMI), Aslak Orre (CMI) and Elina Troscenko (GRIP).


The tickets to the movie can be purchased at BIFF. The panel discussion is a free event.


Fredrik Gertten’s new documentary tackles the subject of global kleptocracy. An assassinated journalist in Malta, shady firms who provide the ultra wealthy with multiple passports, and grotesque examples of economic disparity in Chile are all results of the economic elite’s refusal to abide by the social contract. But we also meet renowned Dutch historian Rutger Begman who claims we must understand human evolution as “the survival of the nicest”. BREAKING SOCIAL is a film about infuriating social injustices, filled with inspiring ideas.
