“The Big Scary ‘S’ Word” Review

-Allison McCulloch

Opening with Ella Fitzgerald singing “Get Happy”, Yael Bridge’s powerhouse documentary feature debut explores how Americans view “the big scary ‘s’ word”: socialism! It covers the history of socialism in America and breaks down the lies and show how billionaires simply don’t have an incentive to move to renewable energy.

It features such prominent politicians as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders and has prominent Kickstarter donors including: Lesli Linka Glatter and Peter Travers (and A. Mann, C. Slater). I’ve been paying attention to Yael Bridge from the time she was helping to produce Robert Reich’s live videos on Facebook (she subsequently co-produced his film Saving Capitalism). I hope to see much more from her!
