Description

Encore: Bringing back some of the hottest documentaries for an encore presentation.

Get the inside scoop from the brilliant and notorious intellectual Noam Chomsky in Requiem for the American Dream, his final long-form documentary interview, filmed over four years. Widely regarded as one of the most important thinkers alive, Chomsky takes on the unprecedented level of inequality gripping the U.S. with his signature cool and devastating intellectual power. Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to this moment, when U.S. Democratic candidates speak freely against “the one percent” to great applause and the Occupy movement makes headlines rallying against an ever-more-visible concentration of money and power. Tracing a half-century of policies designed to favour the wealthy at the expense of the majority, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into what may well be the lasting legacy, and undoing, of our time.
