New Film Exposes Bruce Wasserstein and Lazard-linked Elderly Care Facilities Exploiting Seniors
Date:7/9/2008

ACTION: Activists take to streets for 'Rolling matinee' throughout U.S. to debut film targeting Lazard CEO

NEW YORK, July 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Workers and residents from controversial assisted living provider Atria Senior Living will join members of the Service Employees International Union Thursday in a "rolling matinee" to debut a new film by acclaimed documentary film-maker Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films about Atria's mistreatment of its workers and elderly tenants.

The film, "Gouging Grandma," follows Lazard Ltd's billionaire CEO Bruce Wasserstein from New York to Bermuda as he tries to escape responsibility for problems at Atria. Atria is owned by a Lazard-affiliated private equity fund.

In New York City, activists will stage a premier of the film on mobile flat-screen televisions outside Lazard's offices at Rockefeller Plaza, handing out movie tickets and free candy to the lunch-time crowds. They will also hit Wasserstein's home at 927 5th Ave. later in the day. Simultaneous actions will occur in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Boston. For a full list of times and locations in cities across the country, see the end of this message.

The video is available at http://www.ImproveAssistedLiving.org.

SEIU also launched an online campaign this week, placing Web ads on some of the world's largest news sites highlighting Atria's gouging of its elderly residents. You can also see the ads at http://www.ImproveAssistedLiving.org.
