The Frostburg State University Programming Council Film Committee will show “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price” Thursday, May 10, at 7 p.m. in The Lane University Center’s Atkinson Room 201.
The controversial film “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price” is the newest film from director and producer Robert Greenwald, and the first from his new venture, Brave New Films. The film takes the viewer on a deeply personal journey into the everyday lives of families struggling to fight against a goliath.
From a small business owner in the Missouri to a preacher in California, to workers in Florida and a poet in Mexico, dozens of film crews on three continents bring the story of an assault of families and American values. Current and former employees, managers and executives will tell all about the corporation’s inner workings. This film is based on individual human beings, all over the world, at all levels of society, telling their story in very personal terms.
This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the University Programming Councils’ Film Committee. For more information, contact the Lane University Center information desk at (301) 687- 4411
