Forward 13: Waking Up the American Dream 

When: Wed., Aug. 6, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: Free
In the wake of the 2008 financial collapse, many documentary filmmakers set out to explore how it happened, who was to blame, and what the fallout was. But there's a difference when a filmmaker approaches the topic not as a frustrating abstraction, but as something that touched his life personally. Patrick Lovell—a veteran TV producer and former Park City resident—places his own experience front and center in Forward 13, describing how financial setbacks led to his own house going into foreclosure in 2011 after a protracted process attempting to renegotiate the terms of his loan. From there he begins a cross-country journey talking to people on various sides of the contentious subject of income inequality, from Occupy Wall Street protesters to representatives from conservative advocacy groups. Catch this distinctly human face of a national crisis, then stick around for a Q&A with Lovell after the screening. (Scott Renshaw, City Weekly)
