Presented by Poverty Cure-Acton Media-Coldwater Media
The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi billion dollar poverty industry-the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to US agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?
Co Producer Michael Matheson Miller will facilitate a discussion following the screening of this documentary movie.
