Work hard, save up, sacrifice, and you’ll get ahead. America has long been thought of as the land of upward mobility and opportunity, but over the last decade, this American Dream has been called into question. The Millennial Dream is a feature-length documentary that explores the values that are coming to replace the American Dream. Check out the full length documentary here.
After the film was made, Hemmings House licensed it to PBS throughout the United States, Amazon Prime, iTunes and Hulu. Hemmings House was also sponsored by BDC to tour the film across Canada. Other investors helped fund American screenings. The Hemmings House team personally screened the film to over 5000 people in small theatre settings across North America.
The result has been an increase in optimism for the strengths of Atlantic Canada, and other 2nd tier communities that we have screened the film in. The University of New Brunswick has been recognized as the most entrepreneurial university in Canada, and this film helps promote the institution as one that is evolving and pivoting to accommodate values-shift. The BDC was able to inspire hundreds of their employees, clients and stakeholders by being a part of this project.
