Requiem for the American Dream is the definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky on the defining characteristic of our time – the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few.

Profoundly personal and thought provoking, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time – the death of the middle class, and swan song of functioning democracy. A potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed.

Free and open to the Public.

Conversation will follow the film screening, led by Tim Downs of Clark University. Tim Downs is Associate Professor of Environmental Science & Policy in Clark University's Department of International Development, Community & Environment and a resident of Barre, Massachusetts. He works on how to estimate climate-change impacts, and ways to mitigate them, prepare for them and adapt to them - especially those related to water resources, wastewater/stormwater, and public health. He builds response capacity with communities, policy makers, engineers and scientists in domestic US and international settings.
