Organizer/AuthorShiny Object
The world's first dramatic-documentary-musical! Written and narrated by Harper's Magazine editor Lewis Lapham, "The American Ruling Class" explores our country’s most taboo topic: class, power and privilege in our democratic republic and attempts to answer the question, "Who rules America?" And this one has another huge and diverse line-up in it: Barbara Ehrenreich, James Baker III, Robert Altman, former US Senator Bill Bradley, Kurt Vonnegut, Walter Cronkite, Mike Medavoy (former chair of Tri-Star Pictures and co-founder of Orion Pictures), Pete Seeger, William H. Taft IV, and many more.

"Like a documentary version of 'The Wizard of Oz' as director John Kirby and Lapham attempt to illuminate the heart of darkness inside the American political-economic machine. What they find ain’t pretty." - Montreal Mirror

"The American Ruling Class" will play with the 1997 Shock Productions short film, "Beyond the Door" with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello. A dark irreverent comedy about a clergyman's battle to overcome his fear of doors.

Admission: $5.00
