Using classic and contemporary films and expert commentators, Crisis! engages the community in discussion about the current global economic crisis. The panelists include experts from Buffalo State’s faculty and the community. Audiences can expect a broad spectrum of views, as we aim to stimulate lively discussion and debate.

Everybody has an opinion about provocative filmmaker Michael Moore, who asks tough questions about how American corporations and financial institutions sacrifice the interests of working people in their endless pursuit of shareholder profits. Is Moore making a political statement, or is he an honest documentarian? Expect a lively discussion about this highly entertaining, highly controversial film.

Admission to Crisis! is free.
