Movie Night - THE BIG SHORT

Location: Conway Middle Room

The Big Short is a 2015 American biographical comedy-drama film directed by Adam McKay, based on the 2010 book by Michael Lewis. The film follows four outsiders who saw the coming of the 2007 housing market crash which was ignored by big banks, government and the media, and caused a global financial crisis.  Besides using unconventional techniques to explain the mechanics behind the crisis, the film challenges all of us to confront the ethics and regulation of “money changers and merchants” (as Jesus did in his cleansing of the Temple). What have we learned about human greed since?
