The engaging documentary ‘Inequality for All’ is rich in detail on how the ‘haves’ are leaving everyone else behind.
Smart, funny and articulate, Robert Reich is the university professor we all wish we’d had. He’s so accessible and entertaining he takes a subject that sounds soporific and makes it come alive like you wouldn’t believe in “Inequality for All.” That topic, as the title indicates, is the widening income gap in the United States between the hugely rich and the rest of us. Reich and documentary director Jacob Kornbluth turn out to be the ideal collaborators to tell the story of what that gap is, why it happened and why it’s important, all in a totally engaging way.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with panelists Ari Kamen, NYS Political Director of the Working Families Party; Julia Solow, Community Organizer for Community Voices Heard; and Nancy Gutman, Adjunct Professor of Economics, College of Arts & Sciences at New York University.
