The American Ruling Class

Lewis Lapham, editor of Harper’s Magazine, wrote this “cleverly contrived non-fiction film” (New York Press) that follows two fictional Yale grads around as they ask some of America’s cultural, political, and economic elite (Walter Cronkite, James Baker III, Robert Altman, Pete Seeger, Lawrence Summers, Kurt Vonnegut, Bill Bradley, Howard Zinn) to define the American ruling class.

The film premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival, followed by a party at the New York Mercantile Exchange. John Kirby—USA—2005—88 mins. A discussion follows the film. Free and open to the public. Donations kindly accepted.
