For the past 25 years, acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES, THIN, KIDS+MONEY, #LIKEAGIRL) has travelled 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. GENERATION WEALTH, simultaneously a deeply personal journey, rigorous historical essay, and raucously entertaining expose, bears witness to the global boom-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream and the human costs of capitalism, narcissism and greed.
This feature is a documentary.
Written & Directed by: Lauren Greenfield
