Continuing our critical look at the effects of entertainment media on the way we view the world, problems in it and our relationship to them, ASD presents Mickey Mouse Monopoly. This film gives an in-depth look at how Disney can shape some of our most formative years giving us a picture of the world not colored and shaped by equality and justice but often white supremacy, patriarchy and classist consumerism.
Mickey Mouse Monopoly takes a close and critical look at the world Disney films create and the stories they tell about race, gender and class and reaches disturbing conclusions about the values propagated under the guise of innocence and fun. This daring new video insightfully analyzes Disney's cultural pedagogy, examines its corporate power, and explores
its vast influence on our global culture. Including interviews with cultural critics, media scholars, child psychologists, kindergarten teachers, multicultural educators, college students and children, Mickey Mouse Monopoly will provoke audiences to confront comfortable assumptions about an American institution that is virtually synonymous with childhood pleasure.
