‘ILL EFFECTS OF THE AMERICAN DREAM’ BY MERETE MUELLER & CHRISTOPHER SMITH
(Watch the video here)
Filmmakers Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller believe the recent housing crisis has been a necessary evil to help change the culture toward the sizes of homes that we choose to live in. They believe the culture is rooted in the concept of the 'American Dream.' They say we have to think about growth and consuming differently. People in their close circles prefer to have the flexibility to figure out the lifestyle that fits the life they want, rather than getting a job they don't like in order to support a lifestyle that they like.
