This new documentary about biggest heist you’ve never heard of looks all kinds of brilliant

Rory Cashin

“This is the largest financial crime of the last 25 years…”

Alex Gibney knows his way around a brilliant documentary.

He has previously directed the likes of The Armstrong Lie, Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God, Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine, Going Clear: Scientology & The Prison Of Belief.

He was Oscar-nominated for Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room, and went on to win the Best Documentary Oscar for Taxi To The Dark Side.

So when he jumps on board as an executive producer for a documentary, we sit up and pay attention.

The China Hustle tells the story of the unsettling and eye-opening Wall Street horror story about Chinese companies, the American stock market, and the opportunistic greed behind the biggest heist you’ve never heard of.

As they say in the trailer, “there are no good guys in this story”, as the greed blinds everyone involved to the truth of what is going on behind the scenes.

The documentary will be available to watch online from 30 March 2018.
