Charles Ferguson’s film – Inside Job – won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2011. It narrates the shocking conflicts of interest between the finance industry, politicians, academics and regulators, which eventually led to the trillion-dollar economic collapse of 2008, and today's crisis. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion (10 Tera Dollar), resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs.

   Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia. Narrated by Academy Award winner Matt Damon, INSIDE JOB was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China, by Academy Award winning filmmaker, Charles Ferguson.
