Free Film Event: The End of Poverty?

October 19, 2008 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free Film Event:  The End of Poverty?

Please join us for the Washington screening of “The End of Poverty?” This daring film that takes a hard look at world poverty and challenges capitalism and the American way. In a world of plenty, why are so many families around the world still living in abject poverty? This is the question at the heart of this thought-provoking documentary by filmmaker Philippe Diaz.

The feature-length documentary — which won critical acclaim at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and is narrated by actor Martin Sheen — will be theatrically released in the U.S. in March 2009. It will be previewed in the Washington area as part of Stand Up Against Poverty, an international event to raise awareness about the plight of the poor. There will be time for discussion and questions after the film with Diaz and several poverty experts. The film will also be screened as part of the event in London, Morocco, Sao Paulo and Sydney.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to povertyfilmscreening@gmail.com.
