We're at a stage in history in which our views on America and the "American Dream" may not match what our country has been experiencing over the last few decades. With internal struggles still overshadowing our slow progress of making the transition away from the recession, we continue to pursue for the light lingering at the end of the tunnel. As we focus on ourselves and the individual effort of making it through the pain, we fail to fully grasp and understand the overall picture. To provide that opportunity, PF Pictures presents a specific and to-the-point documentary that will break down the three significant issues affecting the United States and the impacts they have.
Peter Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared Scott have spent the last year and a half discussing important topics with one of the most important intellectuals alive, Noam Chomsky. Their film, Requiem for the American Dream, focuses on "America's staggering concentration of wealth, unprecedented inequality, and the corrosion of democracy." As the film makers express, our nation is at a critical point in history, and no one would be able to tell the story in the proper manner like Noam Chomsky. Noam Chomsky, a global scholar, "has tirelessly explored the powerful forces that dictate policy decisions in the United States for decades, and in doing so, has compelled many to move beyond conventional notions of how we view our political system. A global phenomenon – both revered and reviled – Chomsky has influenced and inspired generations of thinkers, politicians, academics, activists, students, and organizers alike." With Noam Chomsky's perspectives, PF Pictures will be able to reach a greater scope of individuals, informing us about the troubles that we face as a nation on a deeper scale.
Regardless on where we stand, whether political affiliation to class structure, being informed and educated about current issues surrounding our nation is important. Requiem for the American Dream will be an eye opener for many. We have the tendency to get lost within our own opinions and shy away from challenging ourselves to an extent that we fully understand certain points. A few years back, I had the opportunity to hear Noam Chomsky speak about a few global topics and am looking forward to his discussion with PF Pictures.
Overall, the idea of listening to Noam Chomsky's views POPs.
