Guest Speaker Dr. Constantin Parvulescu, a European film industry specialist from the University of Navarra, Spain, presents the film Capital and will provide a short overview of a presentation he will give at UC on “High Finance and Financiers on the European post-2008 Screen.” The film will be followed by a discussion about European cinema's depiction of finance after the 2008 crisis.
Capital , by veteran filmmaker Costa-Gavras, was inspired by the effects of the 2008 financial crisis on European businesses. The story follows the head of a French bank who attempts to retain control of the company in the face of a takeover bid by an American hedge fund.
