“I shall largely speak of mice, but my thoughts are on man...”
From 1958 to 1983, John B Calhoun experimented on rodents, crowding them into "rat cities" to study the growth and behaviour of their populations.
In 2011, Spaceship Earth's human population passed 7 billion. Worldwide, converging crises in food, energy, water, economics and social cohesion have us debating the total collapse of the human enterprise.
Through Calhoun's experiments, Critical Mass examines the exponential growth of human population and the looming challenges facing civilisation. Constant competition killed Calhoun's rodents – community and co-operation can save humankind. http://www.criticalmassfilm.com
