The City That Sold America

Directed by Ky Dickens

United States, 69 minutes

This retrospective film chronicles the evolution of Chicago’s booming marketing and advertising industries throughout the 20th century. Initially a central gathering place for people moving between coasts, and later a destination for southerners escaping Jim Crow laws, Chicago turned into a hotbed of entrepreneurs that shaped consumerism as we know it. From Tony the Tiger to What’s Uuup?, these campaigns changed our relationship with popular culture and created lasting impressions.
