Center Aisle Cinema: "Good Fortune"
Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

This film by Landon Van Soest and Jeremy Levine is a provocative exploration of how massive international efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa may be undermining the very communities they aim to benefit. In Kenya’s rural countryside, Jackson’s farm is being flooded by an American investor who hopes to alleviate poverty by creating a multimillion-dollar rice farm. Across the country in Nairobi, Silva’s home and business in Africa’s largest shantytown are being demolished as part of a U.N. project to upgrade slums. This screening is a collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series (www.pbs.org/pov). Learn more and watch the trailer at films.dbrl.org.
