Award-winning photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield has spent a quarter of a century traveling the world to chronicle excessive consumerism in all its forms and the elusive pursuit of happiness. "Generation Wealth," her U.S.-focused documentary, is the result of a life spent observing the pathologies that have given rise to the richest society the world has ever seen.Rather than delivering aphorisms on history's good guys and bad guys, Greenfield delves beneath the Manichaean surfaces of the globalism debate to tell stories about real people. Greenfield made "The Queen of Versailles," 2012, a Shakespearean tragedy about billionaires who build the largest privately owned house in America – only to see their lives begin to fall apart as the credit crunch bites.It eschews the bigger picture at times for Greenfield's own personal account of her relationship with wealth, and the extent to which she has been complicit in the new culture.
