by William G. Gilroy

"Poverty, Inc."

The University of Notre Dame’s Office of Pre-College Programs will present a screening of the film “Poverty, Inc.” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday (June 29) at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

Free tickets are available through the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center ticket office at 574-631-2800 or online at performingarts.nd.edu/.

Drawing from more than 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, “Poverty, Inc.” turns the notion of aid on its head and examines charity’s deleterious effects.

A panel discussion follows the screening and includes Magatte Wade and Daniel Jean Louis, both featured in the film, and Connie Mick, associate director of community-based learning for the Notre Dame Center for Social Concerns. The panel discussion will be led by Paulette Curtis, faculty director of Undergraduate and Pre-College Programs and The AnBryce Scholars Initiative and concurrent instructor of anthropology at Notre Dame.
