Has your home value declined? Did your retirement fund loose value?  Are you part of the under-employed or unemployed millions? See the new film The Wall Street Conspiracy to find out why. 

Meet filmmaker Kristina Leigh Copeland, who began digging into Wall Street irregularities years before the 2008 financial collapse. What she uncovered —manipulation of the market through "naked short selling" of stocks — has became the focus of her first documentary, The Wall Street Conspiracy. While manipulation and fraud are not new to Wall Street, Copeland found that the shift to electronic transactions have made billion-dollar deals based on inflated share counts and manipulated price drops easier to commit and harder to uncover. Copeland's documentary reminds us of the Savings and Loan Fraud, the Libor scandle, and the continuing possibility of  financial insider manipulations by huge banks, venture capital funds and organized crime in a globalized electronic market.

Doors open at 7:00—admission is $10  for this one time showing.
