Danny Glover Puts Globalization on Trial

From Newsday

Danny Glover' globalization

April 6, 2007

Danny Glover isn't one to sit around waiting for his agent to send him a script for "Lethal Weapon X." He takes a direct hand in managing his own career, negotiating his own film projects. Among those he's negotiated that have come to fruition lately is "Bamako," a film by African director Abderrahmane Sissako ("Waiting for Happiness") opening tonight at Cinema Arts Centre.

Glover, who produced the film, makes a personal appearance at the Huntington film center following the 8 p.m. screening. He'll be interviewed by Newsday critic Gene Seymour in a discussion of "Bamako" and its underlying premise - that globalization spawns so-called "vulture funds," which subjugate Third World nations while fueling the cycle of the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer.
