Andrew Rossi's doc premieres on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Ivory Tower, a doc premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, delves into the complicated question of "is college worth it?"

Here, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts a new poster for the pic, showing a student weighed down by the financial pressures of attending a university.

Filmmaker Andrew Rossi reveals how colleges in the United States came to embrace a business model that often promotes expansion over quality learning. The film also will highlight unique programs with the potential for life-changing college experiences.

Rossi's previous films include Page One: Inside the New York Times, which went on to receive two News & Documentary Emmy nominations and a Critics' Choice Award for best documentary.

From CNN Films, Ivory Tower will have its world premiere in Park City as part of the U.S. Documentary Competition on Saturday, Jan. 18.
