The Film and Panel
Whether you have seen her film before, know of it by reputation, or are hearing about it here for the first time, Stephanie Black’s film LIFE AND DEBT is a classic feature documentary and to mark its DVD re-release this August, Tipping Point Film Fund is launching its film club with this powerful film, followed by a panel discussion which will delve deeper into the truth behind why many developing nations are still under-developed.
‘Who owes who’ in the relationship between the rich north and the poor south? A timely discussion in light of the recent petition of France to return to poverty stricken post-earthquake Haiti, the 90 million gold francs (£14bn) it took as ‘compensation’ to French slave-owners for Haiti’s independence in 1804.)
This event follows the successful TPFF hosted sell-out screening and panel debate of Oliver Stone’s ‘South of the Border’ at the Lexi in July.
We hope you can join us for this next one! And feel free to forward this email/ PDF Flier to colleagues and friends.
