The Great American Lie
- Thursday August 04, 2022 7:00 PM
The Great American Lie is a documentary film that examines what inequality looks like today and traces its roots to our long-revered promise of the American Dream. It's a story about how the ideas that are imbued in the Dream dominate our society and create and perpetuate inequality, deepening our social, economic, and political chasms. The film looks at what Americans are told - through all aspects of our culture - about who and what is valued, based on how we "gender" people and things. This point of view has created the worst economic and social inequality since the Great Depression. And, the more unequal we become, the deeper our crisis of connection.
