Screening & Panel: Disaster Capitalism
On May 3 at 6.30pm, we will be screening Disaster Capitalism, a powerful documentary on a six-year investigation by a best-selling journalist and author, Antony Lowenstein, into how aid dollars are spent. The film tracks the ramifications of disaster capitalism in Afghanistan, Haiti, and Papua New Guinea. After the screening, the film’s director, Columbia University’s Thor Neureiter, will join us for an audience discussion on media coverage of communities who are affected by disaster and conflict. See the Facebook page for more information.
