Andrew Rossi / USA / 2013 / 90 mins / English / Documentary

In 2014, student debt in America trickled into over 1 trillion dollars. This terrifying figure is the basis of esteemed documentarian Andrew Rossi’s (Page One: Inside the New York Times) latest investigatory project, Ivory Tower. From the prestigious Ivy Leagues to the new age ‘hacademics’, Rossi examines the recent student debt crisis through a broad spectrum of institutions and startling statistics that directly address concerns for the future of higher education. Stimulating and shocking, this worldwide trend of skyrocketing tuition is an urgent issue that ultimately begs the question, is it worth the cost?

This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 15 years. People under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
