The Walker College of Business will host a screening of the documentary The Price of Free on Thursday, November 15 from 12:30-2:00 p.m. in the Holland International Engagement Room in Peacock Hall on Appalachian State University's campus.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, The Price of Free (formerly titled Kailash), follows Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi and his team of leaders around the world through gripping secret raids and quests for missing children in the hopes of ending the cycle of poverty which forces them and their families into dreadful circumstances. Refusing to be daunted by the impossible, they have succeeded in rescuing over 87,000 children and created a global movement which has resulted in legislation which helps protect young children.
