Plutocracy tells the story of the American working class in a five-part
series. Income inequality has become a big issue in the modern-day
political spectrum. The documentary film series Plutocracy reveals the
main reasons for these economic struggles. A historical education of the
labor movement, to teach the next generation of activists the lessons of
our history, and to arm them for the future.

Acclaim - excerpts from Metanoia:

“Remarkable…Meticulous research, powerful visuals, and interviews with a
broad range of dedicated labor historians. Truly ‘untold stories’, but
stories we should know.” - Peter Rachleff -Professor of History,
Macalister University

“Very much in keeping with the tone of Howard Zinn's A People's History
of the United States, Plutocracy depicts history from the bottom up. The
saccharine and overly ideological textbook version of this
era--especially the birth of the U.S.--is nowhere to be found in this
series…Full of powerful images…Highly recommended, Plutocracy
contributes a much-needed dose of dynamism to our understanding of how
U.S. capitalism evolved.” - Ruth Hurley -Socialist Worker

“The Plutocracy series is a sobering, compelling and inspiring look at
U.S. history from the bottom up, centered around the fiery struggles of
the working class and the downtrodden…In the best tradition of Howard
Zinn and other ‘people's histories'…Shows us that workers are capable of
heroism under the seemingly worst of circumstances…Highly
recommended.”-  Tim Goulet - Union organizer, Teamsters Local 810
