Thanks to @Registered Member, we have a monthly GGTU "movie club" where a bunch of us get together and discuss a movie (usually a documentary) that focuses on the topic of gambling, gaming or social media.
We recently watched the BBC documentary, Gamblers Like Me: The Dark Side of Sports Betting, which investigates the proliferation of sports betting in Africa. The viewer follows a young Ugandan, Collins Muhinda, who has been betting on soccer since he was a teen. Muhinda interviews politicians, industry professionals and other young men who gamble... while also doing some self-reflection on his own betting habits. The program illuminates the global nature of the sports betting industry, and offers an indictment of how multi billion dollar gambling companies elude national regulators and profit from targeting vulnerable individuals (Free to view on youtube).
Is there a movie (fiction or documentary) or television program you recommend for us to check out next?
