TIFF Ajax Film Circuit presents “Generation Wealth”
Friday, November 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
The latest in her series of works investigating conspicuous consumption, the tenuous hold of the American and Western empires, and the cultural obsession around visible wealth, Greenfield’s Generation Wealth questions the prominence and ethics of the representations and realities of wealth as depicted in our multi-faceted media landscape. As with her previous work, Greenfield’s keen eye expertly prods under the gilded surfaces of her subjects’ glamorous lives and captures the exploitation and sadness that lurks beneath.
Weaving stories of her subjects — some of whom she’s been following and documenting for decades — with footage from her own life, Greenfield ultimately questions how this cultural focus on wealth and the celebration of unbridled capitalism trickles down to more ordinary families and the pressures it extends to those around her.
