The Grapes of Wrath: The Ghost of Modern America

By

Priscilla Pizzato

Symbol of indignation and rebellion, The Grapes of Wrath written by John Steinbeck and published in 1939 raised a scandal. 80 years later, the themes tackled in the novel are more than ever current: labour, justice, capitalism devastation, financialization of the economy, migrants… Featuring movies excerpts and current footage, unseen Steinbeck’s audio video archives and correspondences, interviews with historians, Steinbeck’s specialists and writers, the film will guide us into the analysis of a cult book which became prophetic.
