Carnegie Council Screens "Argentina: Hope in Hard Times"

Apr 21, 2005


On Wednesday, May 11, the Carnegie Council's Global Policy Innovations Program (GPI) will host a special screening of a new documentary that chronicles the aftermath of Argentina’s financial collapse at the end of 2001. The screening will be followed by an audience discussion with filmmakers Mark Dworkin and Melissa Young. Download event flyer (PDF: 1 page).

“The film takes a close look at the social and human costs associated with the Argentine crisis as communities pick up the pieces of the country’s devastated economy,” explains GPI program manager Jerry Maldonado. "Through vibrant images of human solidarity, Dworkin and Young cogently critique the economic policies that came to dominate in the last twenty-five years."

Maldonado adds that the film ultimately delivers a positive message about the ability of ordinary people to reconstruct their lives in the wake of the havoc wreaked by global market forces. "We see Argentines engaging in processions and protests, attending street-corner neighborhood assemblies, and organizing workers’ cooperatives. They find creative ways to organize their resources, communities, and enterprises for the benefit of everyone."

This event is free and open to the public and will take place from 6:00-8:30 P.M. at the Carnegie Council offices in New York City. NOTE: Seating is limited and RSVP is required. To reserve a space, please contact GPI program assistant Evan O'Neil at [email protected], or by calling 212/838-4120 ext. 231.

The Global Policy Innovations Program aims to provide a range of innovative policy choices to decision makers and advocates who are working toward a more ethical model of globalization. Launched in 2004 with support from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, GPI is now a full-fledged program of the Carnegie Council.
