      “Capitalism: A Love Story” is the March 5 film presented by First Tuesday Social Justice Films at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff, 3839 W.

      Watch Michael Moore explore the root causes of the global economic meltdown and take a satirical look at the corporate and political shenanigans that culminated in what Moore describes as the biggest robbery in the history of this country the massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer money to private financial institutions. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1232207/ and clips http://youtu.be/JeROnVUADj0

      This film revolves around the financial crisis of 2007-2010, and in particular, the recovery stimulus which was brought in by the Bush & Obama administrations. Topics covered include Wall Street's 'casino mentality', for-profit prisons, Goldman Sachs' influence in Washington, DC, the poverty-level wages of many workers, the large wave of home foreclosures, and the consequences of 'runaway greed'.

      The documentary features a number of positive portrayals, which include bailout watchdog Elizabeth Warren, Wayne County Sheriff Warren Evans, who put forth a moratorium on home evictions, and Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur, who on the floor of the US Congress encouraged Americans to be "squatters" in their own homes, and refuse to vacate.

      First Tuesday films are co-sponsored by the UUCOC’s Social Justice Ministry and the Dallas Peace Center http://dallaspeacecenter.org /. Future films include Last Call at the Oasis and The Lorax.
