How is the roughly 54 trillion dollars of wealth available in the U.S. divided over its population? The narrated and infographic movie "Wealth Inequality in America" focuses on the difference between our perception of wealth distribution in the U.S., and the actual situation.

During the movie, this issue is represented as a series of stacked bar graphs, and as a percentile distribution graph. Unfortunately, to be able to show off the inequality in the distribution of the numbers, the movie was forced to use a few graphic storytelling tricks that seem to break the chosen visualization technique, and of which I am not sure it brings forward the true message visually.

Watch the movie below.
