The executive producer of “Undercover Boss” is behind a Sundance documentary looking at how the 2008 financial kaboom kaboomed.
Stephen Lambert of Studio Lambert is exec producing “The Flaw” with Christopher Hird of Dartmouth Films and Luke Johnson. Directing the doc, which will have its North American premiere at Sundance while competing in the World Cinema Documentary category, is David Sington, who won the fest’s 2007 audience award with “In the Shadow of the Moon.”
Interviews with economists, bankers, borrowers and brokers will be seen throughout the documentary.
“’The Flaw’ is a terrific film, intelligent and persuasive, but also entertaining, witty and at times moving,” said Matthew Taylor, former head of strategy for Prime Minister Tony Blair and chief executive of the Royal Society of Arts, London. “Most fascinating to me was its core thesis — that the biggest driver of the crisis was wage and asset inequality.”
“Project Runway” creator Eli Holzman is head of the U.S. operation for Studio Lambert, which has also generated “Wife Swap” and “Secret Millionaire” among other programs.
