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.
