Poverty Inc. - Movie Poster
Poverty, Inc. is an upcoming documentary from PovertyCure and Action Media.
This was a proposed design/initial concept for the poster and marketing materials. If this design was chosen, I would have exchanged the bear trap illustration with an actual image.
The idea behind the poster and the film is that our culture exploits poverty for profit, and even good intentions for foreign aid and non-profits can eventually have disastrous consequences. This is summed up by Bill Clinton's quote, "We made a devil's bargain." This refers to his culpability in destroying Haiti's ability to grow rice by forcing them to not charge import taxes on US rice.
