This is the fifth of a series of screenings and discussions organised by Hackney Labour in collaboration with Brewer’s Bar. We’ll be showing The Big Short. From the director of Vice, this is the most radical mainstream Hollywood movie to deal with the global financial crisis. It follows a group of investors who bet against the US mortgage market when they uncover how corrupt it is. After watching the film we’ll be sharing our views about it with economist Simon Youel from Positive Money. Due to restrictions on showing the film, this screening is for Hackney Labour members only.
Tickets are Pay-What-You-Can-Afford. Suggested donations per person: £6 waged, £3 low/unwaged, £9 solidarity. Places are limited so please book via the link if you want to come along. We’ll donate anything raised after we pay for the cost of the film to support campaigning in Thurrock for the local elections.
Doors open at 6pm, and the screening will start promptly at 6.30pm at Brewer’s Bar on Shacklewell Lane.
