BELFAST – A film called “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price” will be shown at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center on Route 3 at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 4. A discussion will follow.
The showing is sponsored by the Maine Earth Institute, a nonprofit organization that sponsors discussion courses designed to broaden participants’ awareness of their effect on the Earth and to encourage exploration of their values.
The film delves into the impact of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest corporation, on communities. Producer-director Robert Greenwald writes that his goal was to get into “the hearts and souls of people affected by Wal-Mart’s policies and tactics.”
For information on the film, call 338-1008 or 338-5859, ext. 34.
