A documentary that follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he looks to raise awareness of the country's widening economic gap.
Winner of Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize.
Robert Reich is a best-selling author of 13 books, University of California Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkely, Clinton Administration Secretary of Labor, and a foremost expert on economics.
Robert Reich is an economist, author, and educator who was U.S. Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton and who teaches a course on wealth and poverty at the University of California Berkeley. Since the mid-1980s, Reich has been outspoken on the issue of the growing divide between America's rich and poor; in his book Aftershock, Reich presents his argument that this gulf is slowly but surely wiping out the middle class, and will lead to an economic catastrophe if left unchecked. Filmmaker Jacob Kornbluth presents a powerful look at Reich and his theories in the documentary Inequality for All; featuring footage from Reich's lectures to students as well as interviews with the author and his conversations with Americans from many walks of life, the film provides disturbing evidence of the roles stagnating wages, growing personal debt, an economy based on consumer spending, and the decline of manufacturing are playing in the weakening of the American economy. Inequality for All received its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Art & Conversation There is no program for November
Friday, December 27, 1:30 - 2:30 pm
Sponsored by Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services of Cape Cod & the Islands, this program is held the fourth Friday of the month. Clients and their caregivers are welcome to attend these sessions conducted by Cape Cod Museum of Art docents. Research shows that visual stimulation through art can help stimulate memory and enhance conversation among individuals who have dementia. People with memory impairment and their caregivers are invited to bond with their peers through discussion and positive reinforcement. Participants engage not only with the art, but also with other members of the group. These groups are free, safe, and confidential allowing for freedom of self-expression and open conversation. Registration: Call Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services at (508) 775-5656.
The Sidwell Family Charitable Fund has contributed additional funding for the Art & Alzheimer’s programs.
