Master Of The UniverseMarc Bauder

He once earned millions a day as one of Europe's most influential investment bankers. Rainer Voss, who has since been fired, talks about the perverse mechanisms and the parallel world of the financial sector. Master of the Universe puts a face on the banker behind the crisis.

"One word describes our film about the financial world: fear". That is what director Marc Bauder said about his own documentary. In Master of The Universe, he gives the floor to an insider who discusses the ins and outs of the big players in the economic market. A lot of money is involved and yet few people really know how it actually works. Rainer Voss worked in the financial sector for years. He earned millions and, like many other young, eager investment bankers, he didn't ask too many questions about those cash flows. Now he comes to terms with himself, on the top floor of an abandoned office building in the financial heart of Europe. A shocking and fascinating look at the financial world.

It's the economy stupid

Economy. Otherwise known as those pages in the newspaper most people skip. However, economy plays a fundamental role in everyone’s life: will I find a job? Why is real estate so expensive? How can a country go bankrupt? Whether you like it or not, it’s all about the money ... DOCVILLE looks at this multifaceted theme from macro-economics to mini projects with a guaranteed basic income to the intriguing world of behavioral economy in which the often irrational behavior of people is translated into predictable models.
