Cleveland versus Wall Street VOST

French documentary film / Switzerland directed by Jean-Stéphane Bron

The film features a mock trial that the city of Cleveland, United States, Ohio, instituted against 21 Wall Street banks whom they blame for the foreclosures that are devastating the city. The trial should have taken place according to counsel for the city of Cleveland, but the procedure had been blocked by legal arguments raised by a team of lawyers in the pay of the banks.

The film won the Audience Award, Paris cinéma 2010.
