Wolff von Amerongen - Did He Commit Bankruptcy Offences?
Gerhard Friedl's essayist documentary describes the course of German economic history in the 20th century.
Friedl´s first full-length film shows us global capital in its roars and ecstasies, its infamy and delinquency. Capital is global as an all-embracing relationship connecting places, individuals, objects, images and words.
“The history of West Germany, with Thyssen and Flick, with the names of economic dynasties that sound fictitious, with foibles, dirty tricks and dubious business deals... Capital remains infamous.” (Drehli Robnik for SixPackFilms)
