The New Americans: Gaming A Revolution

July 16, 2023 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Feature Documentary/2023/USA/102min/Directed by Ondi Timoner


Multi-award-winning director Ondi (Mapplethorpe, We Live in Public, Dig!) Timoner’s latest documentary is a heady rush through the world of video game inspired online-culture driven investors and the worlds and algorithms around them. 

In a powerful and unique movie that takes some unexpected and truly fascinating turns, she explores the individuals who have become at-home stock traders, driving markets and making money (or losing it) as if capitalism was a game and playing the markets was challenging the system. 

Add in everything from late-capitalism and crypto to January 6th, fascinating interviews, and an engaged visual style, and The New Americans: Gaming A Revolution emerges as essential viewing, offering unique insights into contemporary society. 

“Jean-Luc Godard, in his 1966 film Masculin Féminin, famously showcased “the children of Marx and Coca-Cola.” The New Americans is about the children of the 2008 financial meltdown and Roblox, a contradiction that feels closer to a recipe for dystopia.” – Variety
