About the film:
After three of the most dynamic and successful U.S. charities were shut down by conservative charity watchdogs, destroying lives and cutting off precious resources, many of the top influencers in the field knew something had to be done to overhaul the nonprofit sector.
Led by Dan Pallotta, whose record-breaking Ted Talk on the subject has inspired top philanthropists and changemakers, this feature documentary exposes the dark side of philanthropy and introduces a radical new way of giving. In an emotional call to action, Uncharitable (2023) demands that charities be freed from the traditional sackcloth-and-ashes constraints, so that they can truly change the world.
No topic is more crucial and timely as we emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic with the revelation that we are all interconnected and that our fate lies in how much we are willing to invest in positive change.
About the filmmaker:
Stephen Gyllenhaal is a Cleveland-born film and television director.
