New York City, USA

The Big Apple needs little introduction! In ‘My America’, Peter Hegedus travels to New York because he wanted to investigate - in what is arguably the ‘financial capital of the world’ - why the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) happened. It’s in New York, he discovered the US national debt clock seemingly hidden from view just off the Avenue of the Americas. The clock was stuck on 11 trillion, 397 billion dollars but even at the time of shooting, the true debt was an awful lot higher. Culturally, Peter thought the city a ‘huge melting pot’, a city of many different races and cultures.
