Jim Bruce's directorial debut "Money For Nothing: Inside The Federal Reserve" unveils America’s central bank and its impact on the economy and society.
Featuring current and former top economists, financial historians, and investors and traders who provide unprecedented access, the documentary takes viewers behind the curtain to debate the future of the world’s most powerful financial institution.
"Money For Nothing: Inside The Federal Reserve" screened earlier this year at the Nantucket Film Festival and International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam. It opens in limited theatrical release in select cities beginning Sept. 20.
Narrated by acclaimed actor Liev Schreiber, "Money For Nothing: Inside The Federal Reserve" is described as the first film to take viewers inside America’s central bank and reveal the impact of Fed policies – past, present and future – on our lives.
Synopsis: 100 years after its creation, the power of the Federal Reserve has never been greater. Markets around the world hold their breath in anticipation of the Fed Chairman’s every word. Yet the average American knows very little about the most powerful financial institution on earth. As Ben Bernanke’s tumultuous tenure comes to a close, join Paul Volcker, Janet Yellen, and many of the world’s best financial minds as they debate the decisions that led the global economy to the brink of collapse and ask whether we might be headed there again.
Bruce was Editor/Writer/Co-Producer of "Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars" (winner of Best Documentary at the 2005 AFI Fest and finalist for the 2006 International Documentary Association’s Feature Film of the Year).
He has also worked as an editor on the acclaimed documentaries "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters" and "Dambe: The Mali Project" (nominated for Best Feature Documentary at the 2009 Irish Academy Awards).
