THE PANAMA PAPERS
2018, Epix, 96 min, USA, Dir: Alex Winter

This documentary charts the story of the massive data leak that exposed the largest global corruption scandal in history. Hundreds of journalists around the globe worked in secret, at great personal risk, to reveal a scheme involving power brokers, the uber-rich, elected officials, dictators, cartel bosses, athletes and celebrities who had used the Panamanian law firm of Mossack Fonseca to hide money for them. Through a rigged system of tax evasion, fraud, cronyism, bribery, election meddling and even murder, at least $32 trillion was secreted in more than 80 tax havens in 2010 alone. But breaking the story was only the beginning; there was immediate blowback from many of the named and accused, who have used every tactic imaginable to silence the investigation. “A lively and level-headed exposé” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
