Angelika New York: Q&A with Director Lauren Greenfield Friday 7/20 following the 7:30PM show


For the past 25 years, acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield has traveled the world, documenting with ethnographic precision and an artist’s sensitivity a vast range of cultural movements and moments. With GENERATION WEALTH, she puts the pieces of her life’s work together for in an incendiary investigation spanning consumerism, beauty, gender, body commodification, aging and more, creating a comprehensive cautionary tale about a culture heading straight for the cliff’s edge, which ultimately becomes a deeply personal journey and raucously entertaining expose, bearing witness to the global boom-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream and the human costs of capitalism, narcissism and greed.
