One of the interesting things to come of the financial crisis sweeping the globe is how quickly films about said crisis are emerging. It's an odd side effect of the times that documentarians have got plenty of material to pour over and are producing an unprecedented amount of quality films examining every sector of the crisis. Obviously it's a bit strange to call this a silver lining, but it is a good time to be a documentary filmmaker and an even better time to be a fan of documentary films.
This Fall sees the release of Jeff Prosserman's documentary Chasing Madoff, based on Harry Markopolos' bestselling New York Times book No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller, and Movies.com is pleased to be able to give you your first look at the film's poster:
"Chasing Madoff is the compelling story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigator's ten-year struggle to expose the harrowing truth behind the infamous Madoff scandal. Throughout the decade long investigation, Markopolos pieced together a chain of white-collar predators consisting of bankers, lieutenants, and henchmen, all linked to the devastating Ponzi scheme. With risk and danger apparent, Markopolos and his loyal team relentlessly continued to pursue the frightening truth. Finding himself trapped in a web of epic deceit, the once unassuming Boston securities analyst turned vigilante investigator now feared for his life and the safety of his family, as he discovered no one would listen."
Cohen Media Group, LLC will be releasing Chasing Madoff in theaters this coming August 26.
