ICP and Anthology Film Archives continue their ongoing collaboration with a film series held in conjunction with the ICP Museum’s current exhibition, "GENERATION WEALTH by Lauren Greenfield." Using photography, oral history, and film to examine the pervasive influence of money, status, and celebrity in America and abroad, Greenfield explores the ways in which the pursuit of wealth, and its material trappings and elusive promises of happiness, has evolved since the late 1990s. Weaving together stories about affluence, beauty, body image, competition, corruption, fantasy, and excess, Greenfield’s sweeping project questions the distance between value and commodity in a globalized consumerist culture.

AFA presents theatrical screenings of Greenfield’s own moving-image work—including her acclaimed feature film, "The Queen of Versailles," and a selection of her short films—alongside a film series focusing on the themes of conspicuous consumption, body image, and the consequences of money-madness. Anchored by films rooted in contemporary life and society (such as "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Spring Breakers"), the series also ranges through different eras and cultures (via Robert Bresson’s "L’Argent" and Catherine Breillat’s "Fat Girl"), and includes a special sneak preview of Robinson Devor’s upcoming "Pow Wow" (which will enjoy a theatrical run at AFA in early 2018).
