Yahoo! Entertainment Highlights “UnCharitable” in Fall 2023 Movie Preview

Stephen Gyllenhaal looks at the true power of giving in the documentary Uncharitable (Sept. 22). – ‘UnCharitable’ Doc Trailer Shows How to Reboot the World of Charities

Abramorama has unveiled an official trailer for a documentary film titled UnCharitable, made by filmmaker Stephen Gyllenhaal (yes, he’s also Jake’s dad). It will be opening in theaters later in September, after playing at a few summits and conferences earlier this year already.

UnCharitable is a timely and crucial documentary that uncovers the realities of philanthropy (it’s bad) and introduces a radical new way of giving. In an emotional call to action, this invigorating film demands that charities be freed from traditional constraints so they can truly change the world. Featuring Dan Pallotta, Chris Anderson (CEO of TED), Steve Nardizzi (Co-Founder of Wounded Warrior Project), Darren Walker (President of the Ford Foundation), Edward Norton (Actor & Founder of Crowdrise) and more.
