Plutocracy is the first
documentary to comprehensively examine early
American history through the lens of class.
A multi-part series by filmmaker Scott Noble, Part
I focuses on the the ways in which the American

of race, ethnicity, sex and skill level.
Plutocracy: Divide et Impera (Divide and Rule) includes
sections on Mother Jones, the American Constitution;
the Civil War draft riots; Reconstruction;
Industrialization; the evolution of the police; the
robber barons; early American labor unions; and
major mid-to-late 19th Century labor events
including the uprising of 1877, the Haymarket
Affair, the Homestead strike and the New Orleans
General Strike. The introduction examines the West
Virginian coal wars of the early 20th Century,
culminating in the Battle of Blair Mountain.
(‘Solidarity Forever’) will cover the late 19th
Century to the early twenties.
