Directed by Ginger Gentile, the documentary Exclusion U will be released on Friday, June 23, 2023, available on various on-demand platforms including iTunes, Amazon, and GooglePlay. Exclusion U will have its World Premiere in New York on Thursday, June 8, 2023 at the Lincoln Center Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center.
Exclusion U looks at the real scandal in higher education: How Ivy League universities hoard billions while refusing to expand enrollments. These tax-exempt institutions are failing their mission to act in the public good. Interviews with low-income students who fight for a place on campus, deans of admissions and shocking financial information force the question: why do we continue to invest so much in institutions that invest so little back in us?
Director Ginger Gentile’s previous documentary films include Erasing Family. Exclusion U Is produced by Veronica Nickel (Moonlight) and includes interviews with Davarian Baldwin (In the Shadow of the Ivory Tower), Tressie McMillan Cottom (Lower Ed), Anthony Jack (The Privileged Poor), Jeff Selingo (Who Gets In and Why) Dan Golden (The Price of Admission) Richard V. Reeves (Brookings Institution), Lauren Rivera (Northwestern University), Deja Foxx (influencer/staffer for Vice President Kamala Harris) and others.
