Academy Award Winner for BEST Documentary

The Global Economic Crisis

Cost of Tens of Millions of People

Their Savings, Their Jobs

And Their Homes,

This is how it happened

Directed by Charles Ferguson

Inside Job, a searing assault on the banking industry and its role in the financial meltdown of 2008, has won the ultimate accolade from the film world: the Oscar for best documentary.  Director Charles Ferguson who became a film-maker after making millions of dollars developing internet software, had lost out at the Oscars before, when his 2007 film about the Iraq war, No End in Sight, was nominated, but this time he had a happy ending. The film provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2009, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia.  It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China. (144 minutes)
