Based around the best-selling book The Spirit Level, this film will look at how the rising gap between rich and poor has impacted on our societies. How has it risen? Why does it impact on society? And could greater equality really benefit everyone, even the rich?
They will talk to people from around the world, in different societies, at different income levels. How far do they believe that society makes you who you are, and what do we all want for a better future?

But they need your help. We have so far raised £45,000 through ‘crowdsourcing’ (thousands of small contributors) which has enabled them to start essential work, filming over 15 interviews with some of the world’s leading thinkers from the US, UK and Europe. They have also gathered stories from the frontline all over the world, and are now ready to begin filming with them.
So, they are aiming to raise £30,000 and, with your help, they can get there – every penny raised goes into the production & distribution of the film. You can find out more here.
