A man is sitting in an empty bank. He made millions as an investment banker, now he’s talking. In his earlier films, Marc Bauder was interested in the GDR, the State Security, “the system”. This is also about a system, closed and perfidious. The protagonist’s ongoing narrative reveals a parallel universe that exists completely autonomously and shut away from the “normal” world – which is at its mercy. From the insider’s perspective, the point is less to understand how it all works in economic terms – at the end we will have learned that no one is able to explain or understand it – but to understand the psychological, social, and cultural mechanisms behind a business that is man-made. Perhaps the only approach that makes sense.
