Columbia Center for the Arts presents the academy award-winning film “Inside Job” on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 7:30 p.m. The film will be followed by a panel discussion regarding how the banking and financial industry has changed since 2008. Have we solved any of our global financial issues, where is the economy now. What can we do as ordinary citizens to protect ourselves and our future?
“Inside Job” provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse.
Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.
Run time 120 minutes, rated PG-13. Cost for this film is $5 at the door.
Columbia Center for the Arts is located at 215 Cascade Ave. in Hood River. This film is presented in part by a grant from the Oregon Humanities. For more information please visit our website: www.columbiaarts.org.
