Lauren Greenfield’s new documentary ‘Generation Wealth’—in theaters now—documents our cultural obsession with wealth. Here, she writes about the death of the American Dream.
Acclaimed Emmy-winning documentary photographer/filmmaker, Lauren Greenfield is considered a preeminent chronicler of youth culture, gender and consumerism, as a result of her monographs “Fast Forward”, “Girl Culture”, “THIN”, “Generation Wealth” and other photographic works, which have been widely published, exhibited, and collected by museums around the world, including the Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the J. Paul Getty Museum, Smithsonian, the International Center of Photography, and the Center for Creative Photography.
Her latest feature-length film, Generation Wealth, was the opening night film at Sundance 2018, and has since screened at Berlinale, SXSW, SIFF and many more. The film received a worldwide theatrical release on July 20th, 2018.
