America is in the grip of a societal economic panic. Lawmakers cry "We’re Broke!”"as they slash budgets, lay off schoolteachers, police, and firefighters, crumbling our country’s social fabric and leaving many Americans scrambling to survive. Meanwhile, multibillion-dollar American corporations like Exxon, Google and Bank of America are making record profits. And while the deficit climbs and the cuts go deeper, these corporations—with intimate ties to our political leaders—are concealing colossal profits overseas to avoid paying U.S. income tax.

WE’RE NOT BROKE is the story of how U.S. corporations have been able to hide over a trillion dollars from Uncle Sam, and how seven fed-up Americans from across the country take their frustration to the streets . . . and vow to make corporations pay their fair share.

Stay after the screening for discussion/Q&A with Director Victoria Bruce.

Doors open at 6:30 PM.
