Ann Arbor Docu Fest - Special Screening

Special Screening

Ann Arbor Docu Fest

Academy Award for Best Documentary

Inside Job

Thursday March 10, 7pm
Cafe Ambrosia, 326 Maynard Street, Ann Arbor
behind Nickels Arcade

Inside Job is the first film to provide a comprehensive analysis of the 2008 global financial crisis, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions to lose jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in global financial collapse. Through research and 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. Locations include US, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.

An added extra looks at the role of academics, many of whom put their name to a system that eventually collapsed.

This film is as gripping as any thriller.

More entertaining than Wall Street 2 while saying infinitely more about the iniquities of those that claim to work for us.
-Fan the Fire

Frightening, hilarious and ultimately rousing experience.

...reconstructing the system that failed and circling its weak spots.
-Daily Telegraph

Here's the biggest story of our time, lucidly told.
-This is London

If you have ever wanted to understand derivatives, hedge funds and collateralised debt obligation, this movie is for you.
-Daily Mail

How deregulation led to disaster. -anon.

re: "Inside Job." I called Cafe Ambrosia this a.m. to ask about the showing of "Inside Job" on March 10th as listed in the Record. The manager on duty told me that no one there knew anything about it. He said that he wasn't aware of any movie being shown. When I asked to speak with someone who might know more, he hung up on me. (So much for Cafe Ambrosia. I won't be buying a cup of coffee there . . .)
