Davis Guggenheim’s new documentary "Spent: Looking for Change" follows the stories of everyday Americans who earn, save, and spend money but don't have access to some of the financial tools most take for granted.

Turning to pawn shops, check cashing services, and using payday loans to meet basic financial needs can be costly for many of us, with $89 billion a year going to fees and interest using these types of alternative financial services.

The film is a call for for change with new technology and new ideas, pointing out that we can help make managing money simple and more affordable.

"Spent: Looking for Change" will premiere in Summer 2014.

Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim will executive produce the documentary.

A trailer preview was released at this year's SXSW.

American Express is sponsoring this documentary to drive change and help improve financial inclusion in the U.S.
