HEIST: Who Stole the American Dream?
HEIST: Who Stole the American Dream?
A rallying call for the 99%, HEIST: Who Stole the American Dream? co-directed and co-produced by former CNN producer Frances Causey and Donald Goldmacher, has been stunning audiences at screenings and film festivals across the globe.

HEIST: Who Stole the American Dream? is a feature documentary which investigates the roots of the current economic crisis, and the ongoing assault on working people in the United States. It tells the hidden story of the systemic, multifaceted corporate attack on the middle class that, starting in the 1970s, transformed America's well-regulated economy into a battlefield littered with foreclosed homes, runaway jobs, and broken dreams.
“‘HEIST’ is well timed as a one-stop summary of reasons for ordinary Americans to be furious at our financial systems.”- Dennis Harvey, Variety

"'HEIST'...paints the picture of a democracy slowly and methodically being nudged toward oligarchy with help from all sides." - Mindy Farabee, Los Angeles Times

Praised By NY Times As ‘Persuasive,’ Feature Film Traces The Great Recession To A 1971 Memo And Actions By Both Major Parties
