USA, 2010, 93 Minute Running Time
35mm Presentation - Freakonomics is a new documentary from six rogue filmmakers that exposes the hidden side of everything, debunking conventional wisdom and revealing what answers may come if one just asks the right questions. Based on the phenomenally bestselling book about incentives-based thinking by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner, the film examines human behavior with provocative and sometimes hilarious case studies, bringing together a dream team of filmmakers responsible for some of the most acclaimed and entertaining documentaries in recent years: Academy Award winner Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Casino Jack and the United States of Money), Academy Award nominees Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp), Academy Award nominee Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me), Eugene Jarecki (Why We Fight) and Seth Gordon (The King of Kong).
