This satirical documentary film revolves around the financial crisis of 2007-2010, and in particular, the recovery stimulus which was brought in by the Bush & Obama administrations.
Topics covered include Wall Street’s ‘casino mentality’, for-profit prisons, Goldman Sachs’ influence in Washington, DC, the poverty-level wages of many workers, the large wave of home foreclosures, and the consequences of ‘runaway greed’.
Produced by Michael Moore
Michael Moore is an Academy-Award winning filmmaker and best-selling author. His films ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ ‘Capitalism: A Love Story,’ ‘Bowling for Columbine’ and ‘SiCKO’ are among the all-time top grossing documentaries globally. He actively campaigns for a fair healthcare system in the US, more humane foreign policy judgment from US governments, and to bring US troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. He is also active against viscous corporate power, the corrupt US financial system, and many other causes. His documentary films are always filled with satire, but this does not tend to cloud his argument, and that stylistic talent has arguably made many more people watch his films, than may not have ordinarily done so – thus making many more people aware of various important issues. All of the films we feature contain information that is of great importance to us all
