Superpower in Freefall

Superpower in Freefall examines the dire state of the U.S. economy. The situation has had direct consequences for all layers of the American society.

In engaging personal stories the documentary follow the lives of people who have been forced to live in tent cities tucked away in the forests of New Jersey. They have lost their jobs as a result of the economic crisis and have run out of living options.

In Miami a big shot realtor benefits from the poor housing market and a student is drowning in debt with little prospect of a job.

The film highlights 3 critical aspects of the U.S. economic problem: Lack of energy resources, expensive wars, and competition from the rising power of China. The challenges facing the U.S. can be seen everywhere – no doubt the U.S. is a superpower in freefall.
