Dan Pallotta to release Uncharitable film this Spring


Dan Pallotta has made a film documentary based on his book Uncharitable, to be released in March.

Uncharitable the film will premiere in the US, and become available for streaming at the end of May.

Like the book, the film highlights the difference between what is considered acceptable for for-profit organisations compared to nonprofit organisations, and calls for this to change. It challenges viewers to consider whether everything we’ve been taught to think about giving, charity, and the nonprofit sector discriminates against and undermines the causes people love and want to help.

As such, it aims to ‘change everything you’ve ever thought or been taught about charity, giving, solving the greatest problems of human suffering that have plagued humanity since the beginning of time and building a world that works for everyone’.
