college tuition skyrockets and student debt explodes, a powerful new
documentary reveals a nationwide fight for control of the heart, soul
and finances of America’s public universities.
STARVING THE BEAST tells the story of a potent one-two punch roiling
public higher education right now: 35 years of systematic defunding and
a well financed market oriented reform effort. It’s the story of a
little known and misunderstood ideological fight, the outcome of which
will change the future of public higher education.
Official Selection at the SXSW Film Festival.
