Insignia Films Storytelling that Sheds Light on the Human Condition

Las Vegas:
An Unconventional Story
Well-heeled mobsters, glamorous showgirls, fantastical mega-casinos, dazzling neon displays- it’s the world’s most famous monument to reckless abandon and unbridled excess. From a dusty railroad town in the middle of nowhere, Las Vegas has grown into one of the world’s premier tourist destinations. Once shunned as Sin City and considered beyond the pale of respectable society, it is now the epicenter of mainstream leisure, attracting more visitors than the holy city of Mecca. Las Vegas: An Unconventional History steps into the world of bright lights and back-room deals to illuminate what makes it perhaps the most American city in the country.
