Autlook Acquires ‘Master of the Universe’

Docu won Locarno's Critics’ Week prize

LONDON — Vienna-based sales house Autlook has acquired worldwide rights for Marc Bauder’s documentary “Master of the Universe,” which won Locarno’s Critics’ Week prize.

The deal was negotiated between Bauder and Autlook’s theatrical director Salma Abdalla and its CEO Peter Jager.

Abdalla is seeking to replicate the success of “Capitalism, a Love Story” and “Inside Job,” both of which lifted the lid on the abusive power of the banking system.

“’Master of the Universe’ gives a face and voice to the anonymous guild of bankers. The top banker’s in-depth analysis makes us emotionally empathize with him. An urgent and important access to the mindset of a ruling class,” Abdalla said.

Abdalla and Jager will be in Toronto to present the film to those buyers who were not in Locarno.
