Salt Lake City, Utah – When Leslie and Andrew Cockburn started making their documentary in January of 2008, they didn't know the story would become one of the most important of our time. American Casino is about the subprime lending scandal and the wagers that Wall Street was placing on real people. It also follows homeowners who bore the brunt of the collapse - from foreclosure to bankruptcy to homelessness. American Casino is being screened in Utah next week, and Tuesday, the filmmakers join us to talk about it.
