“In her own words, comedienne Gilda Radner looks back and reflects on her life and career. Weaving together recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with her friends, rare home movies and diaries read by modern day comediennes (including Amy Poehler), LOVE, GILDA offers a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story. These never-before-seen-or-heard footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda to tell her own story – through laughter and sometimes tears.” —Director Lisa D’apolito

Lauren Greenfield’s GENERATION WEALTH is an extraordinary visual history of our growing obsession with wealth. Through riveting first-person interviews, Greenfield’s journey starts in Los Angeles and spreads across America and beyond, as she documents how we export the values of materialism, celebrity culture, and social status to every corner of the globe. We gain intimate access into the lives of those that rose to extraordinary wealth and then lost “big” during the global economic crash of 2008. And we encounter the A-list celebrities we follow on reality TV and social media, the same influencers who shape our consumer desires and sense of self. Provoking serious reflection, Generation Wealth is not about the rich, but about the desire to be wealthy, at any cost.
