Poverty, addiction, suicide, and homelessness — the systemic issues facing many of America’s hometowns — are centered around a common theme: inequality. In their new documentary film, Tightrope, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn explore the on-the-ground manifestations of inequality and challenge the pervasive “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” mentality.


About the film:

Inspired to uncover the reasons behind the untimely deaths of many close childhood friends and neighbors, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn journey back to Kristof’s hometown to explore the on-the-ground manifestations of inequality that lead to poverty, addiction, suicide, and homelessness in America’s hometowns. Shining a powerful light into the fallacy of the American Dream and the pervasive “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” mentality, Kristof and WuDunn pose the question: How do we harness the potential of human kindness to recover as a country?
