Master of the Universe
(Master of the Universe) Director: Marc Bauder, D-A, 2013, German version / Czech and English subtitles, 88 min
The recent financial crisis, which has been shaking up Europe’s economy, was not necessarily the last one. Has the business world learned from it, or are the same models being repeated over and over again? Who are the decision makers? Master of the Universe is the testimony of a former leading investment banker who made millions in business. Now he sits in the middle of an empty bank and tells the shocking facts about the world of high finance, sales reveals mechanisms, an insight into the background of a large investment bank and artificially manufactured bubbles that lead to the bankruptcy of entire countries.
The screening is held in partnership with the Goethe-Institut and the Austrian Cultural Forum Prague.
