Heist: Who Stole the American Dream? A feature documentary by Frances Causey & Donald Goldmacher; 75 minutes, 2012
There are only two kinds of power in America: organized money and organized people.
A new, groundbreaking documentary exposing the roots of the American economic crisis and the destruction of the American dream. With clear, fact-driven storytelling, Heist unflinchingly reveals the hollowing out of the U.S. economy - the result of four decades of deregulation, massive job outsourcing, and tax policies favoring mega-corporations and wealthy elites. Structured as a political thriller, “Heist” effectively connects the dots to show audiences how - and why - we live in an era of class warfare, and what we can do to restore democracy and economic fairness. Heist features Richmond Progressive Alliance as champions in direct action showing organized people fighting - and winning - against corporate abuse. This is the rallying cry of the 99%, who can take this moment in history and transform the American economic and political landscape through information-sharing and direct action.

Discussion and Q & A with director/producer Donald Goldmacher after the screening - light refreshments will be available. $10.00 donation requested to benefit Richmond Progressive Alliance, the Heist Re-Imagine the Dream Campaign, and Communities for a Better Environment – No one turned away for lack of funds.
