Emmy-Winner, Lauren Greenfield, Talks ‘Generation Wealth’ on Tom Needham’s The Sounds of Film

Popular documentary filmmaker, Lauren Greenfield, is Tom Needham’s featured guest this Thursday at 6 pm on WUSB’s the ‘Sounds of Film.’

‘Generation Wealth’ is Lauren Greenfeld’s multi platform project including a museum exhibition, a photographic monograph, and a documentary film. The film features Lauren traveling across America and beyond, as she documents how we export the values of materialism, celebrity culture, and social status to every corner of the globe. In the film, we hear stories of people overwhelmed by crushing debt, yet determined to purchase luxury items and houses. The movie also showcases the celebrities who are the social influencers that shape our consumer desires. With sharp social commentary from “Empire of Illusion” author, Chris Hedges, ‘Generation Wealth’ shines a light on the world’s desire to be rich at any cost.
