Russell Brand vs Lord Rothermere in new Emperor’s New Clothes clip

Watch another clip from the forthcoming documentary.

Russell Brand

Another clip has been released from forthcoming documentary The Emperor’s New Cloths.

In the clip Russell Brand doorsteps Daily Mail owner Lord Rothermere about his tax arrangements as a nondom tax exile.

Russell Brand joins forces with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom for The Emperor’s New Clothes, a polemical documentary about the financial crisis and gross inequality we currently face.

Starting with the genesis of today’s economic policies, with the arrival of Milton Friedman’s school of thought in Reagan’s leadership and Thatcher’s UK, the film explores how these policies have come to dominate the western world. The rich have got richer; where a CEO of a major British company used to earn 10 times the average wage of his workers, now they earn 200 times. According to Oxfam, the richest 80 people in the world own as much as the poorest 3.5 billion. It would now take 300 years for the average cleaner, cleaning the offices of his senior boss, to earn the same salary taken home by the same boss last year.

Using a mixture of documentary, interviews, archive footage and comedy, Russell Brand takes us from his hometown Grays in Essex, to the heart of London ‘City’ and on to the Big Apple. This daring film will shake up the world by revealing the bewildering truth about how the people at the bottom are paying for the luxuries of those at the top.

The Emperor’s New Clothes will be released on 24th April 2015 in selected cinemas.
