WITH NOAM CHOMSKY BEFOREHAND
Dirs. Peter D. Hutchison and Kelly Nyks l Documentary | U.S.A. | 2015 | 73 min.
Widely regarded as one of the most important intellectuals alive, Noam Chomsky delivers the definitive discourse on the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. He unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality, while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation. His insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time—the death of the middle class, the swan song of functioning democracy—is riveting. This provocative film is required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future.
“Extends beyond left and right, resulting in a lucid analysis that’s breathtaking in its simplicity, and all the more scary for it.” – Joshua Rothkopf and David Ehrlich, Time Out NY
“As one expects, Chomsky again proves to know more about his targets than they seem to know about themselves, calling on bits of history that damn not only the business-boosting right wing, but those on the supposed left side of American politics.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
