Summer Film Screening



The Notre Dame Office of Pre-College Programs would like to invite the community to join us on Wednesday, June 29, at 6:30 pm, for a screening of the powerful documentary Poverty, Inc. at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. turns the notion of aid on its head and examines charity's deleterious effects. Fighting poverty is big business, but who profits the most?
From TOM​S​ Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?
Free tickets are available through the ND DPAC ​ticket ​o​ffice at (574) 631-2800. A panel discussion will follow the screening, including two of the film's most memorable voices, Senegalese entrepreneur Magatte Wade and Haitian entrepreneur Daniel Jean Louis, as well as  Dr. ​Connie Mick, Associate Director of Community-Based Learning for the ND Center for Social Concerns. The panel discussion will be led by Dr. Paulette Curtis, Faculty Director, Undergraduate and Pre-College Programs & The AnBryce Scholars Initiative and Concurrent Instructor of Anthropology at the University of Notre Dame​.
