For the past 25 years, acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES, KIDS + MONEY, THIN) has traveled the world, documenting with ethnographic precision and an artist’s sensitivity a vast range of cultural movements and moments. Yet, after so much seeking and searching, she realized that much of her work pointed at one uniting phenomenon: wealth culture. With her new film, GENERATION WEALTH, she puts the pieces of her life’s work together for in an incendiary investigation into the pathologies that have created the richest society the world has ever seen. Spanning consumerism, beauty, gender, body commodification, aging, and more, Greenfield has created a comprehensive cautionary tale about a culture heading straight for the cliff’s edge. Simultaneously a deeply personal journey, rigorous historical essay, and raucously entertaining exposé, GENERATION WEALTH bears witness to the global boom-bust economy, as well as the corrupted American Dream and the human costs of capitalism, narcissism, and greed.
