Poverty, Inc. Film Screening

UTS graduates from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (including all Communication disciplines, all Education specialties and International and Global Studies) and their guests are invited to attend our inaugural UTS School of International Studies alumni event where we will be screening the film Poverty, Inc.

Join fellow alumni, current students and industry partners for a thought-provoking documentary directed by Michael Matheson Miller. Poverty, Inc. explores the power dynamics embedded within the current charity model which often disempowers and disengages the poor, situating them as objects of charity rather than the active protagonists and ultimate saviours in their own stories.

The film has earned over 40 film festival honours including a “Best of Fests” selection at IDFA Amsterdam - the biggest documentary festival in the world. With numerous screenings at Harvard, MIT, Yale, Stanford, Cornell, Penn, Notre Dame, Northwestern, and others – this is an opportunity to see the film in Australia.

We also welcome you to stay after the film for conversation and networking over drinks and canapés.
