The Medical College of Wisconsin BRI chapter is proud to screen Poverty, Inc. to students and faculty. It is a bold look at “the business of doing good.” Please join us for refreshments and lively discussion following the film.
From the film’s website:
“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.”
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Seventeen students joined us at the screening. The event was a success, there was great engagement and discussion following the film.
