The latest project from “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room” director Alex Gibney aims to expose corporate greed, examining powerful forces that extend all the way up to the White House. The six-episode series, titled “Dirty Money,” features direction from prominent documentary filmmakers hand-picked by Gibney, including Fisher Stevens and Kristi Jacobsen. In the newly released trailer, the investigative series pillories figures like Martin Shkreli, HSBC, and TRUMP, Inc.
Gibney’s episode explores a VW scheme that put thousands of lives at risk; Big Pharma and the notoriously loathed Martin Shkreli are the subjects of Erin Lee Carr’s (“Mommy Dead and Dearest) section; Fisher Stevens (“Before the Flood”) profiles the rise and reign of TRUMP, Inc. On a lighter note, “Amanda Knox” director Brian McGinn takes an unexpected topic: A Candian maple syrup cartel.
Gibney proves once again he isn’t afraid to poke the bear, as he did with “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.”
“Dirty Money” hits Netflix on Januray 26. Watch the trailer below:
