Celebrity talent comes together for series of short films about America’s economic past, present, and future.
San Francisco, CA, May 08, 2015 –(PR.com)– evox Television (evox Omnimedia) proudly presents the work of acclaimed and award-winning filmmakers and performers as they tackle the American economy in 22 short films. Viewers are privy to cutting edge and often refreshingly irreverent and entertaining explorations that answer the questions: What is the Economy? What is Money? What is the Role of Our Government in the Economy? What is Globalization? What Causes Inequality? The films are presented in wildly different styles from realism and documentary to bold comedy, musical, and animation, with each film and filmmaker expressing a very different voice. It is a fast-paced binge-watch opportunity or happy viewing destination one or two at a time.
A considerable high profile talent pool has made WE THE ECONOMY its mission, with 21 directors including Morgan Spurlock, Jessica Yu, Adrian Grenier, Catherine Hardwicke, and Adam McKay and performers like Amy Poehler, Patton Oswalt, Susie Essman, Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, Andy Richter, Werner Herzog, and so many more. Top-tier economists are also on board to help audiences, who always hear about the economy but don’t necessarily know the ins and outs, demystify a complicated topic while empowering the public to take control of the nation’s economic present – and their own economic futures. WE THE ECONOMY has found a way, through a diverse range of artistic visions, to make important conversations feel less like castor oil and more like dessert.
