Profits and Losses

From healthcare to the environment to banking and beyond, corporations wield unprecedented power in our political system. Driven by special interests, awash in lobbying dollars, and evasive of any serious regulation, can corporations be compatible with the public good? Is there simply too much greed? Facing widening income inequality, an untenable healthcare system, and a government unable to articulate basic principles of equity and fairness, can we find a 99 percent solution? Join moderator Steve Engelberg (managing editor of ProPublica) along with Jack Blum (subject of We're Not Broke), Heidi Ewing (DETROPIA), Charles Ferguson (Inside Job), Kelly McMasters (subject of The Atomic States of America), Dr. Stephen Nissen (subject of ESCAPE FIRE), and Raj Patel (subject of Finding North), as they consider who profits and who loses from big business.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
