Graham Corrigan, Brian Lederman, M.J. Geier, Hugo Genes

Collegetown is a narrative-documentary hybrid that illuminates the social and financial situations that determine choices made by debt-ridden U.S. college students. Through the lives of five students, the film depicts the modern college student’s experience with student debt and heavy campus recruitment from the financial industry. “Neither a documentary nor a feature film, Collegetown is a remarkable hybrid that searingly goes to the heart of the twisted culture of higher education. It’s a disturbingly entertaining film that exposes the dark side of the educational dream factories. A must see.” (Timothy Corrigan, Director of University of Pennsylvania Cinema Studies and author of The Essay Film)
