Starving the Beast
“The gutting of America’s public universities is,’ as Steve Mims says in his documentary STARVING THE BEAST, ‘one of the nation’s most important and least understood fights.’ His film goes far in correcting that, thanks not just to his thorough research, but also a strong narrative and compelling cinematography.” — Daphne Holland, Village Voice
