TPA is delighted to be a partner this year for the United Nations Association Film Festival. Join us on Friday, September 30 for a FREE Festival Cafe at the Los Altos Public Library. We’ll be showing “Inequality for All,” Robert Reich’s award-winning film about the widening income and wealth gap, the problems it causes, and what we need to do about it.
Until we can take a step back and understand the big picture, we can’t do anything to get ourselves out of this mess. Our democracy as we know it depends on it. I’m an educator. I love the classroom. But I also write books, appear on television and on the radio, and do everything else I can do to help people understand the economic truth. It’s my life’s work and it’s more important than ever. One of the best ways to help people understand the challenges we face, is with a movie that can grab an audience and move them to action.
–Robert Reich, Economist, UC Berkeley Professor, and former US Secretary of Labor

The film was first screened at the UNAFF 2105 festival (http://www.unaff.org/).
Conceived in 1998 at Stanford University by film critic and educator Jasmina Bojic in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) screens documentaries by international filmmakers dealing with topics such as human rights, environmental themes, women’s issues, children, refugee protection, homelessness, racism, disease control, universal education, war and peace. By bringing together filmmakers, the academic community and the general public, UNAFF offers a unique opportunity for creative exchange and education among groups and individuals often separated by geography, ethnicity and economic constraints.
