Films with: Pickett, Kate

Divide
In the 1980s the governments of both the United States and Great Britain adopted policies of cutting taxes, limiting public welfare spending, deregulating industries, and suppressing labor unions. This documentary takes a deeply personal look at wealth inequality, telling the story of seven individuals striving for a better life in the modern day U.S. and U.K. Weaving these stories and others with stunning footage and commentary from experts like Noam Chomsky, The Divide shows how virtually every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor. The film is inspired by the critically acclaimed, best-selling book The Spirit Level by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.

Dysfunctional societies why inequality matters /
"In this new film based on his international best-seller The Spirit Level, Wilkinson focuses on why the U.S., despite being one of the richest nations in the world, lags behind so many other rich Western societies in a number of crucial statistical measures, including life expectancy, violence, health, community, teen pregnancy, mental illness, and incarceration"--Publishers website.
