Film: THE PANAMA PAPERS

THE PANAMA PAPERS, Directed by Alex Winter

Leaked by an anonymous source to journalists in 2015, the Panama Papers were an explosive collection of 11.5 million documents, exposing the use of secretive offshore companies to enable widespread tax evasion and money laundering. Widely viewed as the largest data leak in history, the release of the Papers had wide-reaching implications, incriminating 12 current or former world leaders, 128 politicians or public officials and various celebrities and public figures. In his expansive documentary, THE PANAMA PAPERS, director Alex Winter speaks to the journalists who worked to ensure the release and examines how it reshaped our understanding of corruption in the highest tiers of government, along with the ongoing effects on global inequality. The film intertwines the story of these reporters with that of the anonymous source (narrated by LORD OF THE RINGS star Elijah Wood). Time: 100 minutes

Guest Speaker: Kevin Hall, Chief Economics Correspondent & Pulitzer Prize-Winning Senior Investigator for McClatchy Newspapers, Washington DC

Moderator: Tom Needham, Host of “The Sounds of Film” on Stony Brook University’s Own Radio Station, WUSB
