The winner of the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar explores the 2008 financial crisis through the lens of four unorthodox moneymen, who foresaw the consequences of the fraudulent mortgage-lending practices of large banks on Wall Street. Christian Bale plays Michael Burry, a former hedge-fund manager who was one of the first to forecast the collapse of the credit bubble due to excessive subprime lending. Steve Carell is Mark Baum, a money manager who rose to fame after successfully betting against subprime mortgages. Rated R.

Noted producer, writer, and photographer Mark Seth Lender will share stories drawn from his recent fieldwork in the Arctic, Antarctic, Iceland and Africa.
It is well known that animals hold back in conflicts with their own kind. If they didn’t, tigers, elephants, and a host of well-armed others would long ago have gone extinct. Virtually unknown is the remarkable degree to which this same courtesy – which Mark Seth Lender calls Restraint – extends between species. Mark will share stories drawn from his recent fieldwork in the Arctic, Antarctic, Iceland and Africa that illustrate the principal of Restraint, and will suggest a singular rational for why Restraint exists.
