ABOUT THE FILM
In taking control of the American political process, corporations and billionaires – and their lobbyists – have brought economic hardship and ruin to vast swaths of the United States. Combining insights from such notable political thinkers and award-winning journalists as John Ralston Saul, Chris Hedges and Maude Barlow with the experiences of citizens in the “sacrifice zones” of Camden, New Jersey, and Youngstown, Ohio – where factory closures and outsourcing have created a grim landscape of desolation and human suffering – this engaging and powerfully persuasive investigation into failed neoliberal policies presents revolutionary and inspiring ideas on how to overcome this corporate coup d’état.
