Born Rich was made in 2003 by Jamie Johnson, heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, documenting his experience growing up in one of the world’s wealthiest families. This was Johnson’s first documentary film, his second film The One Percent is much better.
Wikipedia describes the film as “a documentary on children of the insanely rich, directed by one of their own, Johnson & Johnson heir Jamie Johnson.It consists primarily of Johnson interviewing his friends and peers about the experience of living life free of financial constraints. These interviews are offset by Johnson’s exploration of his own experience and family. Jamie’s uncle is screenwriter and novelist Dirk Wittenborn, whom Jamie credits with encouraging him to make a documentary about the experience of wealthy children.”
