American Winter

(American Winter) Director: Joe Gantz, USA, 2012, original version / Czech and English subtitles, 90 min

A documentary based on eight intimate portraits of American families that reveals the impact of the recent economic crisis on one of the most powerful economies in the world. After losing their jobs, once proud members of the middle class find themselves in situations where they can't pay their bills and fall into a spiral of debt. In the worst cases, they are evicted from their homes. Maintaining one's dignity becomes extremely difficult. The fates of the families draw attention to the weaknesses of the US welfare system and to how easily the idea of the American Dream, in which hard work leads to a contented life in one's home, can vanish.f
