Hard Times: Lost on Long Island
The Great Recession 'officially' ended in the summer of 2010, but for 25 million unemployed and underemployed Americans the fallout continues. For too many, their middle-class life has been foreclosed and their dreams have turned into nightmares. Sadly, their stories have too often been ignored. In a strange way they have been 'disappeared,' evicted from our collective conscience - a permanent new underclass of long-term unemployed.Located on Long Island, the birthplace of the post-war suburban American Dream, this documentary follows the story of the long-term unemployed and the shrinking of the middle class by chronicling the lives of four families. Starting in the Summer of 2010, which was supposed to be the summer of recovery, and continuing through the holiday season six months later, we witness the growing difficulties and despair as these people search in vain for employment while their plight and pain are too often invisible to the political and media mainstream. This film hopes to remind us of their humanity and restore respect and dignity to their struggle.
