As the title suggests, Brother, Can You Spare a Dollar explores the socioeconomic realities of the Great Depression era and compares it to our current recession-ridden society. Through contemporary interviews and archival materials the film recreates the 1930's - a period when most people had low expectations regarding material comforts, but high expectations in terms of personal responsibility and community. We travel across the decades to site the growing influence of consumerism, technology, and mass media and illustrate how our higher standards of living were garnered at the expense of our sense of community, security and fellowship. We study the Occupy Movement and it's potential to transform the "Me" Generation, trace the development of the "virtual" society, and speculate on the future social impact of frivolous technologies. -- (C) Quad Cinema
