AFFLUENZA uses personal stories, expert commentary, hilarious old film clips, and “uncommercial” breaks to illuminate a serious social disease. During the last 20 years, as per capita consumption has risen 45%, our quality of life (as measured by the Index of Social Health) has gone down 52%. On average, we shop six hours a week and spend only 40 minutes playing with our children. AFFLUENZA tells us how things have gotten out of hand, and what we can do about it.

Awards: Best Documentary, National Wilbur Awards; Silver Apple, National Educational Media Network Competition; Honorable Mention, Columbus Int'l Film & Video Festival
