Requiem For The American Dream

Join Indievents, Gigastrand International, and Club David, Sunday, March 13, for the South Dakota Premiere of Requiem For The American Dream.

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.

"[Chomsky] melds history, philosophy and ideology into a sobering vision of a society in an accelerating decline... this well-paced and cogent seminar spotlights a man who, now 87, seems at the height of his intellectual powers." - New York Times

"It couldn't be more timely, not only because the idea that it is its heart -- the impact of the concentration of wealth and power on our politics -- has received so much attention of late, but more specifically because its animating concerns are central to the current year's presidential election" -- RogerEbert.com

"Chomsky, who has spent much of his career analyzing the impact of wealth inequality, is the ideal anchor for the film... Requiem For The American Dream is sure to pack a much-needed punch in America's gut." -- Indiewire
