OWNED: A TALE OF TWO AMERICAS

Expected to Attend: Director Giorgio Angelini; producers Maggie Burns, David Usui

NYC PREMIERE After World War II, US housing policy sought to create middle-class wealth through homeownership—but these benefits were largely intended for whites only. Today, we see the results: practices including redlining, predatory lending and unchecked speculation have Americans—of all races—shut out from the dream or drowning in real-estate debt. Moving from Levittown to Orange County to Baltimore, this timely film exposes the greed, flawed economic policy and systemic racism that distorted “the American dream” into a game only few can win.
