Affluenza

Categories: Documentary, Arts and Culture, Health and Food

AFFLUENZA is an entertaining and educational documentary that diagnoses a serious social disease—caused by consumerism, commercialism and rampant materialism—that is having a devastating impact on our families, communities and the environment. We all have more stuff, but less time, and our quality of life seems to be deteriorating. Using personal stories, commentary from historians and other experts, hilarious vintage film clips, and "uncommercial" breaks to illuminate the nature and extent of the disease, this groundbreaking film reveals the forces that have dramatically transformed us from a nation that prized thriftiness—with strong beliefs in "plain living and high thinking"—into the ultimate consumer society. AFFLUENZA is hosted by National Public Radio's Scott Simon and features appearances by "Your Money or Your Life" authors Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin, "Barbie Get Real" playwrights Jennifer Gailus and Olivia Martin, Focus on the Family's Glenn Stanton, and others.
