Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Lauren Greenfield’s new documentary “Generation Wealth” is the culmination of a career spent exploring the glitz, glamour and underbelly of wealth culture. For the past 25 years, Greenfield has photographed ostentatious displays of big spending by the wealthy, as well as the not-so-wealthy but status obsessed. Greenfield joins Forum to discuss “Generation Wealth,” what it was like turning the camera on herself and what her work says about society.
