Sundance 2014: Ivory Tower
Last year, student loan debt in America topped $1 trillion. That fact led filmmaker Andrew Rossi to investigate whether higher education is actually worth the sky-rocketing cost of tuition. His latest documentary film, Ivory Tower, examines the costs and benefits of college, and it tries to find out what higher ed is really all about, what it does well, where it fails, and whether the growing number of alternatives to university are actual viable. Rossi joins us Thursday to talk about his film as we continue our coverage of the Sundance Film Festival.
Ivory Tower is screening at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in the U.S. Documentary category. Screenings will be held Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Prospector Square Theatre in Park City, and Saturday at noon at the Egyptian Theatre, also in Park City.
