Give Us The Money - Why Poverty? [SCREENING]
An inside look at the politics of poverty and cult of celebrity. November 21st at the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre TVO DocStudio will premiere Give Us The Money - Why Poverty?
From Live Aid to Make Poverty History, celebrities have become activists against poverty. Bob Geldof and Bono have been the most prominent voices advocating on behalf of the poor. But have their concerts and campaigns really lifted millions out of poverty? Geldof, Bono and Bill Gates speak candidly about how to lobby effectively and how to play to politicians' weaknesses for glitz and popularity.
