HEIST: The End of the Middle Class

4y ago


HEIST: Who Stole the American Dream?, an official selection of the Mill Valley Film Festival, Santa Barbara International Film Festival and Cleveland International Film Festival, is being called a "movie for the movement' by the Huffington Post and has received critical acclaim from the New York Times, Variety, and the San Francisco Chronicle. HEIST explores the roots of the American economic crisis and the continuing assault on working and middle class people in the United States, boldly revealing the crumbling structure of the U.S. economy - the result of four decades of deregulation, massive job outsourcing, and tax policies favoring mega-corporations and wealthy elites. Through expert testimony, investigative filmmaking and key archival footage, "Heist" unfolds critical historical background and offers a robust Take Action section with real world solutions and up-to-the-minute footage from the current Occupy Wall Street movement - an essential primer for everyday Americans to participate in the restoration of economic fairness and our democracy. The directing/producing team of Donald Goldmacher and Frances Causey bring their backgrounds in filmmaking and social advocacy together to make HEIST both a critical piece of the economic justice puzzle and a powerful tool to spark national dialogue, champion solutions and encourage audiences to work together toward creating a fair, sustainable economy.
