"Requiem for the American Dream" explores 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, Noam Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality, while he looks back on his own life of activism and political participation. Profoundly personal and thought provoking, Chomsky examine the death of the middle class and swan song of functioning democracy. A potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed.
