Film Synopsis: The Price We Pay

Director: Harold Crooks | Countries of production: Canada, France, United Kingdom, United States | Year: 2014 | Length: 94 min
Language: English, French with English subtitles | Age: 15+ years

In this smart, eye-opening and incendiary documentary, Harold Crooks (co-writer, The Corporation; co-director, Surviving Progress) examines the UK and global financial system, arguing that the inheritance of generations of entrepreneurs and workers has been appropriated by a tiny global elite, whose sole purpose is to artificially increase it – separate to any social utility or adequate taxation – at the expense of the world.

Centred on the City of London and its offshore tax havens, the film blows the lid off the idea that big finance makes the world go round, as leading economists as well as defectors from the world of big finance create a compelling, coherent, and forceful call for action.
