The Panama Papers

Alex Winter, 2018 • USA

In THE PANAMA PAPERS, Alex Winter delivers a powerful, illuminating film that details the unprecedented coordination of over 300 journalists who reveal the biggest global corruption scandal in history. The “Panama Papers” leak involved the unprecedented coordination of hundreds of journalists from 107 media organizations in more than 80 countries, who broke the story in 2015. The papers included over 11.5 million documents that detail financial and attorney-client information for nearly 214,500 offshore accounts. Winter includes interviews with whistleblowers and key journalists on the investigation, to tell the story of the massive data breach which uncovered murky political and financial corruption, bribes, election rigging and even murder.
