MESYM Crossover Documentary Series #20: Poverty, Inc

The MESYM Crossover Documentary Series is held every last Thursday of each month @ Loyar Burok. Everyone is invited to come watch the documentary, participate in the discussion, and meet like-minded people. Admission is free!

Our September event is co-organized with KLEFF – Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival, an annual film festival that features award-winning international and local environmental films by renowned filmmakers. The crossover topic is poverty. We are screening Poverty, Inc, a film which explores the hidden side of doing good.

About ‘Poverty, Inc’

“I see multiple colonial governors,” says Ghanaian software entrepreneur Herman Chinery-Hesse of the international development establishment in Africa. “We are held captive by the donor community.”

The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better.

Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change.

Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore.

From TOMs 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?
