SOCAP presents a live screening of the movie FISHING WITH DYNAMITE, followed by a panel with special guests including Luke’s Lobster Co-Founder and CMO Ben Conniff and Professor Bidhan (Bobby) Parmar.

7 PM EDT // 4 PM PDT

FISHING WITH DYNAMITE is the true story of how corporations and Wall Street — with their obsession with short term profits — are blowing up American capitalism, and the role we all play in putting it back together. The film exposes the destructive effects of maximizing shareholder value capitalism and celebrates stakeholder companies that meet the needs of employees, customers, suppliers, investors, and the community and environment.
