Four Horsemen

Four Horsemen – its message is one of hope

Four HorsemenFour Horsemen is the debut feature from director Ross Ashcroft which reveals the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster.

23 leading thinkers –frustrated at the failure of their respective disciplines – break their silence to explain how the world really works.

The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction – but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned. Solutions to the multiple crises facing humanity have never been more urgent, but equally, the conditions for change have never been more favorable.


“It’s Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft’s crack team of talking heads – economists, whistle-blowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candor and clarity.”

– Total Film

“Four Horsemen is an important film because it presents a sober picture of what is wrong in a non-hysterical way and will ignite a debate about what can be done to create a fairer, less dysfunctional world.”

– Marcus Chown, New Scientist

“The refreshing thing about this film is that Ross Ashcroft also takes the viewer on a broader journey, linking in terrorism, global warming and poverty along with world finances to present a troubling picture of the world today.”

– Mark Adams, Chief Film Critic Screen International

“Director Ross Ashcroft uncovers the systemic, legalized corruption of governments and the banking system enabling the rich to get richer while the majority of the world lives in abject poverty – waiting for the magic of ‘trickle down’ economics to take effect.”

– Rachel Surgeoner, Little White Lies

“That rare kind of film which is capable of changing one’s perspective on the entire world.”

– Lucy Purdy, Sublime Magazine

“Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear.”

– Harold Crooks, The Corporation (Co-Director) and Surviving Progress (Co-Director/Co-Writer)

“The independent production collates 23 key figures from finance, journalism, activism and politics – plus Noam Chomsky – to examine how we got into this financial state, while blasting modern economic theories. Trust us, it’s not as dry as it looks on paper – think Senna-like riveting.”

– Becky Reed, DIY

“Ashcroft keenly rejects amorality and apathy alike, and he may be the first documentarist working in this field to elicit viable solutions from his interviewees, rather than baleful shrugs: you can’t fail to emerge better informed, and better prepared to make the kinds of changes and perception shifts we need to make if we are to move forward from here. Despite the doom laden title, this is a hugely encouraging watch.”

– Mike McCahill, Cinesthesiac

“Ashcroft does not try to shock us into his view by an over-reliance on footage of terrorist attacks or starving African children … [he] shows great intention in this documentary, which is one of the clearest and most demystifying attempts at guiding us through the alien landscape of economics. Four Horsemen answers the fundamental questions, and raises some complex ones, inspiring us to go out and further understand this crazy system we’re stuck in.”

– Robert Zak, Best For Film

“Four Horsemen could be part of a new global manifesto for a desperately needed new world. Watch it and make up your own mind if you want to be part of it”

– Caspar Walsh – Positive News

“Using some of the brightest thinkers of our age, [Four Horsemen] considers where we are today and how we got there. It considers the failings of the economic system and how this has turned our democracies into plutocracies. It does not hark back to some mythical golden age, but considers how FD Roosevelt acted when faced with a similar crisis, and laments the fact our politicians today do not have the same vision to do the same.”

– Dan Carrier, Camden New Journal
