Join MINN for a viewing and discussion of the 2014 documentary Poverty, Inc. It is an inquiry into the nature of human flourishing and the effects of the multibillion dollar poverty industrial complex erected to promote it. The film explores the neo-colonial power dynamics and embedded paternalism underpinning the predominant modes of assistance, which often situate "the poor" as the objects of charity rather than as the active protagonists in their own stories.
