In Debt We Trust

In America’s earliest days, people held barn-raising parties to help neighbors build up their farms. Today parishioners in some churches hold debt liquidation revivals where participants chip in to free one another from the growing credit card debt and loan squeezes that are driving American families into bankruptcy and desperation. Emmy-winning producer Danny Schechter’s hard-hitting new documentary investigates why so many Americans are unable to manage their debts. It is a journalistic confrontation with what former Reagan adviser Kevin Phillips calls "the powerful emergence of a debt-and-credit industrial complex." Director Danny Schechter will be there in person for a post-film Q&A. 88 minutes
