Revolution in Oxford

Director: Sean O'Sullivan


Univ of OxfordOxford Martin SchoolThere's an exciting revolution in Oxford. How will it change your future?

The unprecedented challenges facing the world -- climate catastrophe, overpopulation, rapid technological expansion, extreme inequality, nuclear terrorism -- require radical rethinking to find workable solutions. A need to inspire some of the world's best minds to work together to understand and address these problems prompted Dr James Martin to establish the Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford.

This new film, Revolution in Oxford, shows how novel ideas and interdisciplinary collaborations fostered by the Oxford Martin School are not only changing Oxford University, but also the world. Through candid interviews with the academics involved, James Martin reveals some of the latest insights and new approaches to addressing some of humanity's most intractable questions.
