This film is still in the works, but the trailer promises a compelling, much-needed discussion of how inequality affects America. What's unique about the film is that it's built around an interview with Noam Chomsky, one of the most prominent and influential intellectuals of our time. Chomsky has some powerful words on how income inequality hurts America and what's happened to the "American Dream"; this trailer is something you do not want to miss.
Here's the documentary's description on the filmakers' Kickstarter page:
"'Requiem for the American Dream' is the riveting discussion-of-a-lifetime with Noam Chomsky – "the most important intellectual alive" - on America's staggering concentration of wealth, unprecedented inequality, and the corrosion of democracy.
Through candid conversation, Chomsky sketches an unvarnished portrait of our country today and how the orchestrated efforts of a financial aristocracy, from the '70s to the present, have reshaped social and economic policy to serve their own interests.
... 'Reqiem for the American Dream' is the cautionary tale of what may prove to be the lasting legacy of our time — the death of the middle class."
These filmmakers need help funding this project; there are 25 days left to go for them to raise the remaining $7,000 needed to finish the film. You can donate on Kickstarter, and be sure to check out their Facebook page for information and updates as well.
