Noam Chomsky, widely regarded as the most important intellectual alive, discusses in critical detail the defining characteristic of our time - the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. Through interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky reveals the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality. Profoundly personal and thought-provoking, Chomsky gives penetrating insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time - the death of the middle class and the idea of a functioning democracy in America. "Requiem for the American Dream" is a potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed. This film is required viewing for all who want to maintain hope in the future.
DVD features official "Requiem for the American Dream" trailer and includes English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
