Human Rights Film Series Presents a Killer Bargain
Duquesne University presents a free screening of A Killer Bargain as part of its second annual Human Rights Film Series, Abundance and Abuse.
A Killer Bargain unmasks corporations that profit from Indian textile production through the massive use of pesticides, which kill indigenous workers and destroy their environment. The film illuminates the dark side of globalization, one in which desperately needed jobs in the Third World shorten the lives of many working poor.
The screening of A Killer Bargain will begin with an introduction byDr. James Burnham, Distinguished Service Professor in the Palumbo-Donahue School of Business at Duquesne University.
Organized by Duquesne’s Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, the Abundance and Abuse film series features a lineup of award-winning films that address vital issues, from the ethics of global business to the destruction of the environment.
Tuesday, Feb. 3, at 7 p.m.
Room 105, College Hall, Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave
The series is free and open to the public, and runs through Wednesday, Feb. 25. For more information, visit www.duq.edu/humanrights or call 412.396.6415.
