Executive produced by news legend Dan Rather, Fail State investigates the dark side of American higher education, chronicling decades of policy decisions in Washington DC that have given rise to a powerful and highly-predatory for-profit college industry. With echoes of the subprime mortgage crisis, the film lays bare how for-profit colleges exploited millions of low-income and minority students, leaving them with worthless degrees and drowning in student loan debt. Director Alexander Shebanow traces the rise, fall, and resurgence of the for-profit college industry, uncovering their Wall Street backing and incestuous relationship with the regulators and lawmakers charged with overseeing them.

Maxine Waters is great in roles like these, but the entire cast was as good as he was and the movie kept us on the edge of our seats the whole time.

I am not a fan Tom Harkin, but that aside, he is excellent and never seems to age, and his energy is great. So is Maxine Waters and the entire cast. The cinematography is amazing

Alexander Shebanow did a wonderful job with this movie. He gave the fans what they wanted to see without rolling over and catering to their every demand. 10/10 stars, perfect.
