*Iraq for Sale launches new Get Informed! monthly film series at the

Plaza Theatre*

/New monthly film series promises films guaranteed to make you think.

Admission is by donation./

 

 

Last year Robert Greenwald caused quite the stir with /Wal-Mart: The

High Cost of Low Price/. His follow-up film, /Iraq for Sale: The War

Profiteers/ will now launch the brand new *Get Informed!* film series at

the Plaza Theatre in Calgary on Wednesday, October 11 @ 7:00 PM.

Admission is by donation, so anyone can feel free to come and pay what

they can.

 

/Iraq for Sale/ takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers,

widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of

profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. The documentary uncovers the

connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and

the decision makers who allow them to do so.

*About Get Informed!*

At the Plaza, we believe that film has the power to help people take

action. But before anyone takes action they should become informed.

Often the mass media we find on TV, in the newspapers and in magazines

comes at the world from a bias they we don't always notice. So we're

hoping this monthly series of films will help make informed choices

about the world around them. Yes, some of these films might be biased

themselves, but by simply challenging the status quo, they can get us

thinking. Thinking leads to dialogue, dialogue to action. /So Get Informed!/

 

Each month the Plaza will host a film on a different topic relevant to

what's happening in our world. Admission will be by donation so that

anyone can feel welcome.

 

Future screenings will be announced in the near future.

 

If you would like any further info regarding the Get Informed! series,

any of our other films or the Plaza, please feel free to drop me a line.

 

Thanks!

Ryan
