The term American Dream is largely associated with the previous generation, when the USA was going through a period or large economic growth. Most of the people from that generation is currently in their golden years. Perhaps it will be the last generation in the USA’s near future that will have the opportunity to retire in such comfort. I grew up in a country which I thought to be the antipode of the USA – the Soviet Union. AMERIKA is my experience of the USA in its period of change. It is an exploration of the myth – the American Dream.
