Generation Zero

Special One-Night Presentation

Before becoming Donald Trump’s White House Chief Strategist, Stephen Bannon was a documentary filmmaker. Real Art Ways presents this opportunity to look into the mind of Bannon and experience his ideology through his own cinematic expression.

Saturday, June 3, at 5:00 PM, we present Bannon’s 2010 film, Generation Zero, with a discussion to follow.

From the official synopsis of Generation Zero:

“The current economic crisis is not a failure of capitalism, but a failure of culture. Generation Zero explores the cultural roots of the global financial meltdown – beginning with the narcissism of the 1960’s, spreading like a virus through the self-indulgent 90’s, and exploding across the world in the present economic cataclysm.

Generation Zero goes beneath the shallow media headlines and talking head sound bites to get to the source of today’s economic nightmare. With a cutting edge style and haunting imagery, this must see documentary will change everything you thought you knew about Wall Street and Washington.”

The film garnered mixed reviews, ranging from FoxNews:

“If I told you that “Generation Zero” is the best movie about deficit spending and national debt that you will ever see, would you think I was making a joke? …it’s a brilliant movie… – James P. Pinkerton

…to Counterpunch.org:

“Teabagger Cinema. The inaugural Steve Bannon Tea Party cinema doc boasts combo right wing egghead think tank talking heads and angry white middle class rants. Invoking intimidating biblical scriptures fused with menacing rotting fruit and money on fire.” – Prairie Miller
