Summary
"In Give Us the Money, director Bosse Lindquist looks at how and why celebrities have become the self-appointed spokespeople for Africa's poor. From Live Aid to Make Poverty History, Bob Geldof and Bono have been the most prominent voices advocating on behalf of the poor. But have the concerts and campaigns really lifted millions out of poverty? Geldof, Bono and other celebrities speak candidly about how to lobby effectively and how to play to politicians' weaknesses for glitz and popularity. But as their political influence has increased, so have the questions, with critics wanting to know why celebrities have become the voice of Africa. Extreme poverty has, on average, reduced in African countries. But does an end always justify the means? Were Geldof, Bono and other popular figures right to take on this role and court the politicians? What alternative was there?" -- website
