The film, a feature-length documentary which addresses the impact of the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank and current globalisation policies on developing countries such as Jamaica, starts at 7.15pm.
The panel discussion entitled ‘when will rich countries own up to their responsibility in keeping developing nations poor in order to grow their own wealth‘, will be chaired by Tipping Point Film Fund and includes the broadcaster and academic, Dr Robert Beckford.

The TPFF Film Club will be a regular event (8-12 times per year) where TPFF supporters, relevant NGO networks and the general public can get together to watch a specifically chosen feature-documentary (usually related to the news agenda and campaigning) and enjoy a lively panel discussion or Q&A with guest speakers. Tickets to the TPFF Film Club are free to regular givers and one off donors of £60 p/a or more.
Initially the film club will be located in London but we would hope in time, as we build our volunteer base around the country, to roll the Film Club out more widely and where possible, grow the opportunity to live-stream it from our website.
There will be a free glass of wine for those attending the launch at The Lexi Cinema – courtesy of The Co-operative.
