If the upcoming U.S. election is leaving you frustrated and longing for a voice of sanity amidst the political hype, look no further than the inimitable Noam Chomsky. ¬†“Requiem for the American Dream” is a clear-eyed outline of how and why American idealism has been sabotaged. ¬†Filmed over 4 years, these interviews with Noam Chomsky are profoundly personal and thought-provoking.

“A sobering vision of a society in an accelerated decline….this well-paced film spotlights a man who, now 87, seems at the height of his intellectual powers”

– New York Times (Critics’ Pick)

“A provocative X-ray of current American political realities….the vicious cycle of wealth influencing power and therefore influencing legislation is effectively illustrated in a series of episodic, easily digestible vignettes”
