Doc Edge Presents: Requiem for the American Dream (2015)
Filmed over five years, Noam Chomsky unpacks the US policies of the past half-century, laying bare the principles that have led to this worldwide, historically unprecedented concentration of private capital and political influence, favouring a financial aristocracy while relegating the world’s majorities to the margins. In a profoundly personal way, Chomsky looks back on his own life of political activism and democratic participation – sincere reflections that are not without regret.
