There is a huge difference between 'selfishness' and the idea of the 'self' ie that part of
a person which is aware, can perceive, understand, imagine, communicate, decide and act. The main
thrust of the the 2oth century is the denial of this meaning of 'self' - that people just react to
external stimuli, that their wants and desires are determined by genes or 'society'.
This is in the documentary but the title ought to be "the century of the denial of self".
