The Panama PapersAlex Winter
In the spring of 2016, the media exploded thanks to the publication of the Panama Papers, which exposed the fraud and tax evasion of prominent figures around the world. The Panama Papers explains in an intriguing way what the documents contain and how journalists around the world secretly worked on their publication for a year.
In 2015, an anonymous source shares more than eleven million documents with a German newspaper. A year later, on April 3, 2016, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists publishes the Panama Papers, the largest data breach in history. Drug barons, politicians, top athletes and other celebrities from around the world are linked to tens of thousands of offshores - foreign bank accounts that are often used for illegal financial activities. One month later, 200 countries publish lists of names of all citizens involved. The Panama Papers portrays the journalists involved in the investigation of the Panama Papers, who are forced to keep their work secret during 2015 - which is emphasized at the time that Maltese journalist Caruana Galizia is murdered during the recording of the film. An extremely exciting documentary that guides the viewer deeper and deeper into the maze of the fraud scandal.
