"Heist: Who Stole the American Dream?" is a well-researched, hard-hitting documentary that looks at how corporations destroyed the middle-class by buying government and abolishing necessary regulations. Admission is free. A discussion follows the screening.
Produced by former CNN journalist Frances Causey and directed by Berkeley filmmaker Donald Goldmacher, "Heist: Who Stole the American Dream?" is crisply narrated by author/radio personality Thom Hartmann. Immediately following shots of an Occupy Wall Street demonstration where signs shout “Wake Up,” Hartmann announces, “The mess we’re in now did not begin on Wall Street. Long before the financial collapse, the dismantlement of government regulation was well under way. … This is the story of the biggest heist in American history.”
Over the past year, "Heist: Who Stole the American Dream?" has earned considerable critical acclaim. This film is a New York Times critics selection and an Official Selection at both the Mill Valley and Santa Barbara International Film Festivals.
This event is part of the Second Saturday Documentary Series, a program co-sponsored by Tri-City Perspectives, Niles Discovery Church, and the San Jose Peace & Justice Center.
