Okay, so that’s NOT the title of the movie. That’s MY title.
(Of course, I like my title better than THEIRS.)
They call it The American Dream, and it’s an awesome movie. It really does explain, in just one half of one hour, why we are in the financial mess that we are in right now.
Here’s their description:
The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how you’ve been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? THE AMERICAN DREAM takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.
I like that description. They even use CAPITAL LETTERS, like I do.
However, this is not a kids movie. They use crude language, and there are some moments not appropriate for children. But, be warned. This movie will give even YOU nightmares – for completely different reasons.
