PLUNDER: The Crime of Our Time
Thursday, September 23 at 7:30pm
In Person: Filmmaker DANNY SCHECTER

Members $9  Public $13
(includes reception/book signing)

Plunder: The Crime of Our Time is a hard-hitting investigative film that explores how
the financial crisis was built on a foundation of criminal activity. Uncovering the
connection between the collapse of the housing market and the economic catastrophe
that followed, Plunder opens with the conviction of Ponzi King Bernie Madoff, whose
acknowledged criminality drove a $65 billion dollar pyramid scheme. Director Danny
Schecter argues that the wrong doing committed by a few individuals distracts from the
real story, implicating the best-known institutions that financed and profited from fraudulent
sub prime lending. This connection is now being investigated by the FBI as part of
a probe into what it calls a "fraud epidemic." Ultimately the film calls for a full investigation
and structural reforms of financial institutions to insure accountability by the whitecollar
perpetrators who profited from the misery of their victims. USA, 2010, 78 min.

From the mysterious collapse of Bear Stearns to the shadowy world of trillion dollar
hedge funds, Plunder takes a look at the potential criminal actions of some of the bestknown
institutions that financed and profited from fraudulent sub prime lending
