Event Details

The Telluride Education Foundation (TEF) is hosting a screening of the riveting documentary Generation Wealth at The Michael D. Palm Theatre at 5:45pm on December 27th, 2018. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Lauren Greenfield.

For 25 years photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles) has travelled the world, documenting the excesses of wealth and celebrity that have come to define our culture. In Generation Wealth she revisits many of her subjects as she investigates our desire for more. Underscoring the ever-increasing gap between haves and have-nots, her portraits reveal a focus on image over substance, where those unable to attain actual wealth settle for its trappings, no matter their ability to pay for it. Witnessing the boom/bust cycles of a titan of finance, a porn star, a bus driver, and a child beauty queen, Greenfield also turns the camera on herself to explore the reasons for her personal obsession with her subject matter, and the cost of pursuing excess for us all.
