"We're Not Broke" aims to say more than the simple message "Corporations are bad — BOO!, but every animated statistic and interviewed expert points in that direction. Filmmakers Karin Hayes and Victoria Bruce marshall the facts well, lucidly explaining the complex tax laws that allow multinational corporations to funnel profits out of the United States and into tax-haven nations (such as the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Ireland) to avoid income taxes. The

film also follows a fledgling grassroots protest organization, U.S. Uncut, which spread via social media and could be considered a precursor to the Occupy Wall Street movement. The footage of these plucky activists puts a human face on what could have been a dry reading of economic policy.

— Sean P. Means

"We're Not Broke" screening (with the short "The Debutante Hunters"):

Saturday, Jan. 28, 9 a.m., Temple Theatre, Park City
