Summary "Viewing Disney without rose-colored glasses," as the Boston Globe put it, Mickey Mouse Monopoly takes a close and critical look at the world of Disney's animated films, and the stories they tell about race, gender, and class. The video reaches disturbing conclusions about the values being propagated under the veneer of childhood innocence and fun. Featuring interviews with media experts, cultural critics, child psychologists, kindergarten teachers, multicultural educators, college students, and children, this defiant video examines Disney's corporate power and explores its pervasive influence on global culture.
