Join us for a screening of "We All Fall Down," the award-winning film on the current housing and mortgage crisis. This timely and informative documentary chronicles the history of America's mortgage finance system, from its origins in the 1930s, when the federal government first made available long-term, fixed-rate loans to new American homeowners, to its current state of crisis, after an excess of risky mortgage financing led to the system's collapse, which in turn triggered a wider economic recession.
(Icarus Films, produced by Kevin Stocklin. Run time: 66 min.)
$5 tickets may be purchased at the door and include admission to the Museum. Feel free to bring your lunch.
