Generation Wealth

Scroll down

The fruition of a 25-year documentary inquiry into what has been called “the influence of affluence”, a searing exploration of the aspiration for wealth. Lauren Greenfield’s postcard from the edge of the American Empire captures a portrait of a materialistic, image-obsessed culture.


Simultaneously personal journey and historical essay, the film bears witness to the global boom–bust economy, the corrupted American Dream, and the human costs of late stage capitalism, narcissism, and greed.
