Requiem for the American Dream

.

20 years after MANUFACTURING CONSENT and 10 years after THE CORPORATION, Noam Chomsky now dissects the most dramatic development of our time – the extraordinary consolidation of wealth and power in the hands of a select few and the demise of western democracy. Filmed over 5 years, Chomsky unpacks US policies of the past half-century, laying bare the principles that have led to this historically unprecedented concentration of private capital and political influence. a masterly diagnosis of where we are and where we are heading.

Press

  • [Chomsky] melds history, philosophy and ideology into a sobering vision of a society in an accelerating decline... this well-paced and cogent seminar spotlights a man who, now 87, seems at the height of his intellectual powers.
    THE NEW YORK TIMES
  • Offers a compelling analysis of income inequality in the United States.
    VIDEO LIBRARIAN
  • The short, sharp, smart essay-film makes excellent use of Chomsky's insights while serving as one of the best entry points to the discussion of inequality popularized by the Occupy movement and furthered with Thomas Piketty's unlikely best-seller ‘Capital in the Twenty-First Century’.
    THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
  • Chomsky, who has spent much of his career analyzing the impact of wealth inequality, is the ideal anchor for the film... Requiem for the American Dream is sure to pack a much-needed punch in America's gut.
    INDIEWIRE
  • This enlightening documentary, directed by Peter Hutchinson, Kelly Nyks, and Jared Scott, focuses on the various forces which have brought about the death of the middle class. This may be, according to Chomsky, the enduring legacy of our times.
    SPIRITUALITY AND PRACTICE
  • The writing and directing team of Peter D. Hutchinson, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott have struck pure gold with their new documentary. The four years spent filming Professor Chomsky, have resulted in a detailed and provocative assessment of America’s attempts to move towards ”a more perfect union”. Requiem for the American Dream is a must see film for every citizen of the United States of America.
    VERNON NICKERSON, THE ART OF MONTEQUE
  • ...a timely and essential film for anyone who isn’t part of the 1 percent in the U.S.
    PROGRESSIVE PULSE
  • It couldn’t be more timely, not only because the idea that it is its heart—the impact of the concentration of wealth and power on our politics—has received so much attention of late, but more specifically because its animating concerns are central to the current year’s presidential election
    ROGEREBERT.COM
  • 86-year-old Chomsky nails down a creeping but perceptible shift in societal thinking since the 1960s. His critique extends beyond left and right, resulting in a lucid analysis that’s breathtaking in its simplicity, and all the more scary for it.
    TIMEOUTNY
  • While the topic of inequality has been covered in several documentaries over the past decade, Hutchison, Nyks, and Scott’s essay film benefits from placing their entire focus on one man’s take: Noam Chomsky... While much of what he says is, by his own admission, hardly a surprise, its assemblage and tidy organization here makes this an essential contribution to the body of work exploring modern inequality.
