Look forward to watching this. From the trailer it seems that the argument is not a nostalgia for the past. It is deeper. I liked the fact that the documentary seeks to bring in the larger historical and social context in the picture. Compare that to documentaries like Consuming Kids that focus mostly on hyper-consumerism. Hyper-consumerism I believe is a manifestation of something much larger and deeply pervasive what may be referred to as MATERIALISM. Now how to define and trace the source of materialism are challenging questions. The documentary seems inclined on the rise of capitalism. But it does hint toward renaissance and the transformation in cultural outlook. Would be interested to see how material and cultural are combined in the narrative of this book and movie.
