HAROLD CROOKS’ NEW DOCUMENTARY “THE PRICE WE PAY” OPENS AT CINEMA VILLAGE OCTOBER 30TH
(10/07/15) – Distributor Filmoption International is pleased to announce that the feature documentary The Price We Pay from award-winning director Harold Crooks will make its NYC premiere October 30th at the Cinema Village in New York.
This cinematic essay film exposes how “offshore” tax havens and Google, Amazon and other tech giants of the “cloud” economy are undermining the 20th century legacy of progressive taxation, the New Deal and the Great Society and pushing us into a post-democratic future.
Our Open City Documentary Festival panel with Harold Crooks, moderator Joylon Maugham Q.C., Oxfam UK’s Head of Policy Nick Bryer, and William Taylor, the City of London councilor whom The Guardian’s George Monbiot dubbed “the turbulent priest.” How great it was to screen in the presence of many who contributed so greatly to our film including Tax Justice Network co-founder John Christensen, Offshore World author Ronen Palan, University of Leicester’s Angus Cameron and Lady Margaret Hodge, the parliamentary scourge of global corporate giants without fixed addresses.
