SAVING CAPITALISM Launching on Netflix on Tuesday, November 21

SYNOPSIS | Directed by Jacob Kornbluth, SAVING CAPITALISM, based on Robert Reich's 2015 book, explores the reasons why the economic system that once made America strong is suddenly failing, as well as how it can be fixed. The film is a clear-eyed examination of a political and economic status quo that no longer serves the people, exposing the powerful alliances between Washington and Wall Street, as well as the extreme wealth disparity in our country. Visionary and acute, SAVING CAPITALISM helps build the path toward restoring America's fundamental promise of opportunity and advancement. Diving deep into the political economic system, this documentary is not about being democratic or republican, but refocuses the conversation on how we can fix it.

FEATURING | Robert B. Reich is an American political commentator, professor, and author. He served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter and was Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997. Also, he was appointed a member of then-President-elect Barack Obama's economic transition advisory board. He has published 14 books, including the best-sellers Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few; The Work of Nations; Reason; Supercapitalism; Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future; and a best-selling e-book, Beyond Outrage. The Robert Reich-Jacob Kornbluth film INEQUALITY FOR ALL won a U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Achievement in Filmmaking at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

STATEMENT FROM DIRECTOR JACOB KORNBLUTH | My background and temperament have positioned me well to make films about economic inequality. I grew up poor, and have always had an emotional connection to "who gets what" in society. I also spent my youth split between New York City and rural Michigan - what I often think of as the "very red and very blue" versions of America - so I feel like I have a lot of compassion for people from different points of view. This background has led me to work that takes the big economic ideas and finds ways to tell stories about them that are human and relatable. By reaching across the partisan divide we'll reveal how much people from different backgrounds have in common, as we shine a bright light on how hard it is to discuss ideas without being put in a partisan box. Along the way, we'll educate and entertain, and make a tremendously important contribution to raising the level of discourse at a time when our country needs it.
