Tonight, March 31, 2011 at 7:30PM, marks the single day national release of the film To Catch A Dollar. Directed by Gayle Ferraro, the documentary film tells the story of Nobel Leaureate and Grameen Bank founder Professor Mohammad Yunus and follows his journey from the creation of Grameen Bank in Bangladesh to the founding of Grameen America in New York City. The film also highlights the successful impact that the Grameen Model has already made after just three years in America and closely follows the stories of three women as they work to lift themselves out of poverty with the help of microloans.
This is the only night the film will be screened to a national audience in 227 theatres across the country. The screening will feature an introduction by Robert De Niro and a panel discussion with Professor Yunus, Maria Bartiroma, Suze Orman, and support statements from Hugh Jackman and Matt Damon. It is a great way to learn about the work Grameen America does on a daily basis and the potential of microfinance, especially in America.
