Generation Wealth



Generation Wealth


Wednesday 11 September 8.30pm Channel 039

Documentarian Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles) examines and reflects on the global desire to be wealthy at any cost. This visual history of the growing obsession with wealth takes us from Los Angeles to Moscow, Dubai, China and around the world to bear witness to the boom-and-bust economy, and document its complicated consequences over our obsessive, materialistic drive. Weaving two and a half decades of work into an epic narrative, Greenfield has created a revelatory cultural documentation of wealth for viewers to explore through riveting first person interviews. She examines how we export the values of materialism, celebrity culture, and social status to every corner of the globe. Nominated at Berlin International Film Festival and SXSW Festival 2019.
