Of all developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of income—and we’re surging towards even greater inequality. The U.S. economic crisis and its aftermath have revealed this stark reality and raised a crucial question: What role does the widening gap between the rich and the poor play in the deteriorating health of not only our economy, but of democracy itself?
The new, JustFilms-supported documentary “Inequality For All” explores this issue through the lens of noted economic policy expert Robert Reich, highlighting how the extreme inequality we are now facing has roots in economic and policy changes that began over 30 years ago. Combining footage from Reich’s lectures at UC Berkeley with interviews, archival clips and dynamic graphics, the film tells a gripping story that aims to help audiences understand the challenges we face, and move them to action.
On Thursday September 12, the foundation will host a special pre-release screening of this powerful, Sundance-award winning documentary, followed by a discussion with Robert Reich and director Jacob Kornbluth. The film will be released nationwide on September 27.
