A compelling look at Universal Basic Income, It’s Basic follows those spearheading the movement to combat inequality and poverty by looking at several pilot programs launched in the US that test the effects of giving everyday people an extra $500 to $1,000 monthly, with no strings attached. Directed by Marc Levin and executive produced by Mayors for a Guaranteed Income (MGI) Founder Michael Tubbs, the film explores the power of cash, the importance of dignity, and the ongoing work of providing an income floor through the eyes of guaranteed income recipients who have witnessed firsthand the life-altering effects of financial stability.

A panel discussion will follow the screening.

Presented by The Little Theatre, the City of Rochester, and Mayors for a Guaranteed Income.
