The Business of Changing the World
Does the way we think about charitable giving undermine the causes we love? The Business of Changing the World is the first feature documentary to take a bold and heartfelt look at the nonprofit sector, the archaic restrictions it faces, the controversial issues that surround charitable funding and operations, and the unintended consequences of a well-meaning but misinformed public that sabotage their ability to truly make a difference.
Based on the life’s work of nonprofit activist Dan Pallotta, including his books “Uncharitable” and “Charity Case,” and influential TED Talk “The Way We Think About Charity Is Dead Wrong,” this unprecedented documentary aims to change how we think about changing the world. The motto of YWCA Metropolitan Chicago CEO, Dorri McWhorter, one of the film’s featured changemakers, sums it up well: “Nonprofit is a tax status, not a business model.”
There are documentaries on every conceivable issue of social concern from environmental injustice to gun violence to systemic poverty, but not on the common denominator - the structural dysfunction - that prevents nonprofits from really addressing these issues. Until now. The Business of Changing the World is a film that inspires us all to do better, dream bigger, and expect bigger results.
The Bond paints a complex tapestry of the mother’s bond with her developing child, highlighting how the environment around the mother affects pregnancy. Incorporating interviews with experts from Kathleen Gyllenhaal’s award-winning documentary In Utero, the film follows four women on their complex journeys to motherhood. Tapping into cultural myths, scientific data, and technological trends, The Bond demonstrates how a child’s experience begins in utero, and how expectant parents can anticipate and reduce external stressors.
