His best film yet, as we hurtle toward another economic crisis it is timely to watch Moore's outrage at a system that bails out the rich while the poor suffer. Using anger and humour, the film helps us step back and ask whether a world where people and planet are slaves to profit has any future....and what alternatives could be created? Dinner available 6pm. Resistance Centre, 22 Mountain St, Ultimo. Donation entry $10 waged, $6 conc.
