Hard Times: Lost on Long Island
The Harvard Club of Long Island presents

A powerful look at the human costs of the recession on ordinary Long Islanders

Winner Best Documentary  2011 Hamptons International Film Festival

In Person: PEGGY BOYD, Family Service League, PAULA PACHLER, Long Island Cares

The Great Recession "officially" ended in the summer of 2009, 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 elite.
