Feature documentary “Crash of Systems” is a kind of cinematic study on the three main Systems which were born centuries ago and are still dominating but now malfunctioning in contemporary world. They are, “Capitalism”, “Democracy” and “Military” systems.
They are, of course, not U.S. specific, but they have been more extensively argued, advocated and penetrated into people’s mind through moving images in USA than in any other developed countries. So here the author chose for the creative interpretation and analysis mostly American newsreels, instruction and propaganda films, advertising films( they served as a part of “official discourses” of Systems ).
Through the analysis of such moving images in the form of “montage film”*, author tries, not to represent “alternatives” to existing systems, but to invite the viewers to historical rethinking what seems to be “a matter of course”.
The film also contains recent interviews of American journalist, scholars, and citizens. These materials( licensed by RT), serve as a kind of comments on each topics represented by archive materials, belonging to public domain.

*”Montage film” is a term used by Soviet and Russian filmmakers and scholars to signify “author’s films” built up almost wholly from existing film and photo materials. The most famous author of such films is Artavazd Peleshan. Alexander Sokurov also made such films from late 1970s to early 1990s.
