America Lie

The City of Fort Worth’s Human Relations Commission will present “The Great American Lie,” a documentary film that explores inequality in America, next month.
“It’s a story about how the ideas that are imbued in the (American) Dream dominate society and create and perpetuate inequality, deepening our social, economic and political chasms,” according to a media release posted on the city’s website.

“The film looks at what Americans are told – through all aspects of culture – about who and what is valued, based on how we ‘gender’ people and things. This point of view has created the worst economic and social inequality since the Great Depression.”

The film is a part of the city’s Movies That Matter a film series program. It will be shown Thursday, Aug. 4 at 7 p.m., at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St., in Fort Worth. Admission is free. Reservations can be made at

Please arrive before 6:40 p.m. Seating is first-come, first-served.
