Overdrawn in Sacramento

Disclaimer: the contributor of this and his wife run Movies on a Big Screen, Sacramento’s weekly screening series of documentaries, general independent film, classics and cult titles. The following is blatant self-promotion of a MOBS event.

On Sunday, September 20, 2009 at 7:00 PM, Movies on a Big Screen will be presenting the documentary, “Overdrawn,” and filmmaker Karney Hatch will be in attendance for a Q&A. For those who are unable to attend on Sunday, the film will also be presented on Friday, September 18, 2009 at 7 and 9:30 PM (although Karney Hatch will not be attending the Friday screenings).

About the film:

A feature-length documentary film exploring the predatory lending practices of the major national banks, focusing on overdraft charges. It also explores the larger issues of corporate domination of our society and government and the consumer revolution going on against the banks in the UK.

The film features Ralph Nader, Joel Bakan (author and producer, "The Corporation"), Jim Sturdevant (a San Francisco attorney who won a $1.6 billion class action lawsuit against Bank of America), Marci Mills (former senior VP at Bank of America), Ben W. (former Wells Fargo loans collection officer), Mr. X (a loan shark, whose rates are better than the banks), and many more!

"Delves deep into the myriad ways that major national banks screw poor people . . . " – Portland Mercury
