Forgive Us Our Debts
This documentary explores today's reality: the poorest nations of the south owe more than 485 billion dollars to northern lenders. It investigates the grassroots movement that has confronted the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and G8 lenders, demanding that they cancel the debts of the poor. This film visits the impoverished nation of Nicaragua to see the impact their indebtedness has on the poorest members of society.
