The American dream just keeps getting more expensive. Lauren Greenfield’s postcard from the edge of the American Empire captures a portrait of a materialistic, image-obsessed culture. Simultaneously a photographic journey, memoir, and historical essay, this surprisingly personal film bears witness to the global boom-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream and the human costs of late-stage capitalism, narcissism and greed.

Official Selection: 2018 Sundance Film Festival, 2018 Berlin Film Festival
