This Friday, SEE the new film that NY audiences scrambled to witness!  Begins its one-week run at Edwards University Town Center 6 in Irvine and continues at Laemmle’s Monica 4-Plex in Santa Monica for a second week.  The first film ever to connect the dots between colonialism, globalization and poverty and show that poverty is not an accident.

“…should be required viewing by every politician in the world.”

Eric Monder, Film Journal International

“Simply the finest documentary ever made about global inequality. Puts the victims of the capitalist system in the forefront and allows them to tell their stories.”

Louis Proyect, The Unrepentant Marxist

The film that sold out shows during its opening weekend in NYC, beating at the box office every film playing at City Cinemas Village East including Disney’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ starring Jim Carrey! Narrated by Martin Sheen, The End of Poverty? is a daring, thought-provoking and very timely documentary by award-winning filmmaker, Philippe Diaz, revealing that poverty is not an accident. It began with military conquest, slavery and colonization that resulted in forced labor and the seizure of land and minerals. Today, global poverty has reached new levels because of unfair debt, trade and tax policies — in other words, wealthy countries exploiting the weaknesses of poor, developing countries.

The End of Poverty? asks why today 20% of the planet’s population uses 80% of its resources and consumes 30% more than the planet can regenerate? Can we really end poverty within our current economic system? Think again.
