The New Americans: Gaming a Revolution

104 mins


Writer and director Ondi Timoner’s documentary is a kaleidoscopic, meme-driven journey into a chasm where finance, media and extremism meet. The film drops us into a current reality for many millennials, offering a look at the explosive and irreversible ramifications of our digital future. Timoner’s film is an eye-opening portrait of the new generation of investors, those who play the stock market like a video game and think they’re fighting the power. It’s a modern-day gold rush, where retail traders are driven by the idea that the democratization of stock trading is possible. Hiding behind avatars, accepting a substitute of fantasy for reality, these new Americans are indeed gaming a revolution.
