Katharine Round / 2015 / United Kingdom/United States / 74''

Inspired by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett’s best-selling book The Spirit Level, Katharine Round’s accomplished debut feature illustrates a more personal account of how inequality shapes our societies.

From the fast-food employee struggling to earn a living to the Wall Street psychologist who aspires to live the affluent life of the damaged white collar workers he attends to. Personal testimony from those on both ends of the income spectrum helps to successfully articulate how the rising gap between the rich and poor negatively impacts people from the bottom to the top of society.

Screening followed by Q&A with director Katharine Round.
