*RESCHEDULED FOR JUNE 29* // Film Screening: Requiem for the American Dream

Followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Kelly Nyks.

REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM is the definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky, widely regarded as the most important intellectual alive, on the defining characteristic of our time—the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few.

Through interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality—tracing a half-century of policies designed to favor the most wealthy at the expense of the majority—while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation.

Profoundly personal and thought provoking, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time—the death of the middle class, and swan song of functioning democracy. A potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed, REQUIEM is required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future.

The accompanying book, Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth and Power by Noam Chomsky—containing additional interviews and 3x the material in the film—will be sold at a discount on the day of the event.
