  7. Snagster Weekend Picks: Heist: Who Stole the American Dream? AND Harlan County, USA

    Sit down this weekend and watch Heist: Who Stole the American Dream? Only available on SnagFilms for the next couple of weeks, Heist takes an in-depth look at the economic collapse, tracing its origins to a 1971 secret memo titled “Attack on American Free Enterprise System.” Heist is part of our “Snag the Vote” series leading up to the election.

    Also, don’t miss Harlan County, USA, an Oscar-winning documentary classic that everyone should see. Harlan County, USA tells the story of striking coal miners of Eastern Kentucky. The filmmaker, Barbara Kopple, and her team spent three years with the mining community and their families. It is truly an honor to have this documentary in our library.
