Columbia University School of the Arts presents a film screening of the 1987 Oliver Stone classic Wall Street followed by a discussion between Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and School of the Arts Film Program Faculty Ramin Bahrani. The event is the first in The Bigger Picture series, which aims to further understand our world through film screenings and discussion between leading thinkers and innovators.

Joseph Stiglitz is a University Professor at Columbia University in New York and Co-Chair of Columbia University’s Committee on Global Thought. In 2001, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics. In 2011, Time named Stiglitz one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Bahrani has won numerous prizes including the “Someone to Watch” Independent Spirit Award, the FIPRESCI international critics prize for Best Film, a USA Fellowship, Sundance and Tribeca Film Lab grants, and a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship. He collaborated with Werner Herzog on his short film Plastic Bag and recently directed a music video for the Icelandic band Sigur Rós.
