|aIn Park Avenue, director Alex Gibney investigates how the extreme wealth of a few has created inequality for so many Americans. 740 Park Ave, New York City, is home to some of the wealthiest Americans. Ten minutes to the north, over the Harlem River, is the other Park Avenue in South Bronx, where more than half the population need food stamps and children are 20 times more likely to be killed. In the last 30 years, inequality has rocketed in the US - many Americans now think the American Dream only applies to those with enough money to lobby politicians for friendly bills from Capitol Hill. Through the story of the two Park Avenues, this remarkable film puts forward the argument that the extreme wealth of a few has been used to impose their ideas on the rest of America.
