Event Description

The Project on Predatory Student Lending, Veterans Education Success, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, NCLC's Student Loan Borrower Assistance, the American Federation of Teachers, the Student Borrower Protection Center, and the Fail State Documentary Team proudly present a free, online, educational screening of FAIL STATE, an award-winning documentary executive produced by news legend Dan Rather.

Over five years in the making, FAIL STATE investigates the for-profit college industry and the decades-long reports of student loan abuse within the sector. The film’s central thesis: aided by a cabal of politicians, nationwide disinvestment in public colleges and universities, and an unscrupulous desire to maximize profits at all costs, for-profit colleges have exploited millions of low-income and minority students, leaving them with worthless degrees and drowning in student loan debt. With echoes of the subprime mortgage crisis, director Alexander Shebanow traces the rise of the for-profit college industry in American higher education and uncovers a story that the Los Angeles Times calls “truly eye-opening and crucial.”

The film premiered to sold-out shows at DOC NYC, SXSW EDU, Cleveland International, and debuted on STARZ in December of 2018.

A private link to the 90-minute documentary will be made available to registrants at 5pm EST on October 26th. The screening link will be emailed to all registrants.

Following the screening window, join us for a Zoom Townhall and Q&A with special guests and the documentary's director on October 28th, 8pm EST to 9pm EST. The Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants.

This event is free and open to the public. Virtual spots are limited to 300, so RSVP as soon as possible.

Closed captioning screening link is available.
