World on the Brink
In 2018, the world feels more dangerous, more threatening, and more unpredictable than ever. Global institutions seem unable to control forces unleashed by an increasingly interconnected world. We appear to be moving forward and backward at the same time - forward into a world where technology connects us at an ever-faster pace, and backward into a world where tribalism, religious differences, and resource-scarcity rule the day. In a new, up-to-the-minute documentary series titled A World On the Brink, host Dee Smith (a permanent member of the Council on Foreign Relations and currently at the University of Texas at Austin) provides crucial insights into how we arrived at today's fractured moment, where we may be headed next. "It increasingly feels like we are on the brink," says Smith in his introduction to the four-part series. "But on the brink of what?" The documentary features commentary and insight from 19 leaders from around the world drawn from disciplines as diverse as foreign policy, diplomacy, the military, psychology, finance, engineering, theology, and history. The series is produced by RealVision Television in association with Grace Creek Media, producer of Think Tank with Ben Wattenberg, Ideas in Action with Jim Glassman, and numerous public television documentaries and series.
