BERKELEY -- Filmmaker Jacob Kornbluth was shooting a series of short videos about the economic crisis featuring former Labor Secretary Robert Reich when he realized he had a much bigger story to tell.
"I thought, 'I'm sure there are a lot of people like me who are looking for a coherent story of what happened in a movie (format)," Kornbluth said.
The pair agreed to partner on a feature-length documentary, "Inequality for All." Inspired by Reich's book "Aftershock," it's "sort of 'An Inconvenient Truth' for the economy," Kornbluth said.
