Disparity - IFJ film screening

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) has teamed up with the International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) and the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) to organise a free film screening of Disparity. With inequality at unprecedented levels, reducing the appalling disparity between the rich and poor is arguably one of the most critical issues facing humankind today. There hasn't been a major film about the biggest issue of our time. Until now.

In Disparity, film activist Renu Mehta exposes the reality behind the $150bn foreign aid industry.
