Ottawa Premiere on May 30th!
What happens when capitalism and charity intersect? From Wall Street to life on the street,The Invisible Hearttracks the birth of one of the fastest growing social innovations in modern history: social impact bonds. An unorthodox marriage between government services and private-sector investments, this burgeoning financial model promises to solve society’s most complex problems, from crime to homelessness—but is it delivering? Set in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K, this compelling documentary follows the unlikely people banding together to battle social inequality.
Director Nadine Pequeneza will moderate a post-screening panel with panelists: Adam Jagelewski, Director, MaRS Centre for Impact Investment; Rodney Ghali, Assistant Secretary to the Cabinet, Impact and Innovation Unit, Privy Council Office, Government of Canada, David Macdonald, Senior Economist, CCPA; and Larry Brown, President, NUGPE.
