Ralph Nader on film and in person in Detroit on Thursday

Ralph Nader is speaking at the Detroit Institute of Arts on Thursday, April 19. He will talk and then field questions from the audience following the Detroit premiere of the documentary about his life, An Unreasonable Man. Click here to watch a quick preview . See below for full list of show times and how to lend us some much-needed help.

Here is what the critics are saying...

"Grade A! Thrilling, haunting, perceptive and beautifully made."

–Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"Excellent! An Unreasonable Man is, like The Fog of War, one of those opportunities to step back, take a breath, and remember the seething power of recent history."

-David Poland, Movie City News

An Unreasonable Man taps rare archival footage and more than forty diverse interviews to paint a complex portrait about the storied career of Ralph Nader. This two-hour film (which has garnered wide critical acclaim in recent weeks) uses Nader's harshest critics and most eloquent supporters to create a compelling and inspirational interpretation of Nader's life and of our times. Movie information, a preview, and downloadable flyers are available on the website .

An Unreasonable Man plays at the Detroit Institute of Arts, located at 5200 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Advanced tickets, show times, and theater information are available online or by phone at (313) 833-3237.
