Mixtape

Money Mixtape

5 films | 1 hr 4 min

Inspiring greed, jealousy, and desperation, the lust for cash is one of humankind’s most universal, and perhaps most humiliating, traits. In this month’s Mixtape, five short films introduce us to people whose lives are shaped by the pursuit and abuses of wealth. A desperate, drug-addled couple schemes for a legal settlement to get them out of poverty; an immigrant father sidelines his dignity to buy a special gift for his son; and a heartless capitalist kicks out—and then ships out—his flesh-and-blood workers. Money is a powerful weapon, whether you wield it or get hit in the face by it.
