The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry â€” the business of doing good has never been better.
Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change.
Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. â€‹ From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?

Every incredible episode from the debut season of the reality show supreme-Survivor- where 16 ordinary Americans compete for one million dollars by surviving. The contestants are marooned 20 miles off the coast of Borneo and forced to fend for themselves in hopes of outlasting the others in the group which meets every 3 days to vote one person off the island and the show. 1999-2000/color/11 hrs, 4 min/NR/fullscreen.

Now, all 13 episodes are available in a five-disc set (t...
