‘Master of the Universe’《宇宙最狼》
Award Winning film by Director Marc Bauder, Germany/Austria 2013
Tickets: via URBTIX
‘Master of the Universe’ is a widely acclaimed – and often chilling – documentary about the mechanisms of international financial trading and the inner life of Frankfurt investment bankers during and after the global financial crisis. It is an insider report from a global financial system in which company shares are bought, held and sold within a mere 22 seconds on average, a system that nearly ran out of control in 2008. The consequences are still felt in the daily lives of millions of Europeans.
‘European Insights from the Global Banking Crisis’
– Prof. H. Werner Hess, Deputy Director, EUAP
– General Manager of a leading German bank in Hong Kong
The post-screening discussion will focus on lessons learnt from the crisis and the question whether a similar catastrophe could happen again.
*Participants of the discussion are required to purchase the film ticket via URBTIX.
This event is organized in cooperation with the Goethe Institut Hong Kong as part of the KINO/14 – recent German film productions – Festival.
