Cathedrals - a 15 minute modern day fable on Aeon Film

The city of Kangbashi in northern China is empty. Although its owners continue to make a profit by speculating on rising property values, the city – complete with towering apartment complexes and elaborate recreation centres – is almost completely uninhabited. As the camera explores deserted rooftops and empty streets, a narrator begins a story – a modern fable about a cathedral built of money. Written by Michael Ende, the author of the children’s book The Neverending Story,the tale describes a church full of money-worshippers, for whom ‘Money is Truth’ and ‘Truth is a Commodity’. In Cathedrals, the director Konrad Kaestner seamlessly unites the real images of uninhabited Kangbashi with the dark allegory of the cathedral of money, powerfully observing both the strange intangibility of capitalism and its very tangible effects.

"To heck with the world’s problems, many Americans now say, we have done our share over all these decades of Pax Americana. If China and India are really rising, let them take responsibility for global security, as America took the mantle from Britain in 1945."

— Roger Cohen in the New York Times. Ambivalence about America.
