Shadow World is a documentary that reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade - the only business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives.

Through the insights of whistle-blowers, investigators, prosecutors, military and industry insiders SHADOW WORLD reveals how the international trade in weapons – with the complicity of governments, their militaries and intelligence agencies, defense contrac-tors, arms dealers and agents – fosters corruption, deter-mines economic and foreign policies, undermines democra-cies and creates widespread suffering. Ultimately SHADOW WORLD reveals the real costs of war, the way the arms trade drives it, how weapons of war are turned against citi-zens of liberal democracies and how the trade inhibits rather than enhances security for us all. In shedding light on how our realities are being constructed, the film offers a way for audiences to see through this horror, in the hopes of creating a better future.
