Click image to view trailer
Noam Chomsky, one of the most influential intellectuals alive, explains the principles perpetuating the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few, in what he has called his final long-form documentary interview. Filmed over a period of four years, his clear and accessible summation begins with 18th century philosopher Adam Smith and develops a penetrating x-ray of the ways Chomsky has observed our democracy systematically eroding over several decades, in a “vicious cycle” of concentrated wealth and power, until America has achieved the dubious distinction of having the highest level of income inequality among advanced countries. TimeOutNY wrote: “His critique extends beyond left and right, resulting in a lucid analysis that’s breathtaking in its simplicity, and all the more scary for it.” Producers/Directors: Peter Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, Jared P. Scott. (US 2015) 75 min.
