Pre-screening | Collegetown

Thursday, November 12, 2015 - 5:30pm

Hugo Genes and Graham Corrigan present:

A pre-screening of Collegetown (Hugo Genes, 2015, 76 min,) a feature length narrative-documentary hybrid. The film illuminates the social and financial situations that determine choices made by debt-ridden U.S. college students.

"Collegetown depicts the horrors of campus life and the Wall Street afterlife for the students who are finance wannabes. No punches pulled, it’s a terribly painful watch and well worth it – forunderstanding who/what one has to become to succeed in business. This is one potent way to see the depravity of the capitalist class as told by a dropout from the race and a fine filmmaker."
