John Perkins is a self-confessed economic hitman, reformed and repentant. From 1971 to 1981 he was employed as an economist by consulting firm, Chas T Main. His job? To structure huge international loans to Third World countries (in Perkins’ case: Indonesia, Panama and Saudi Arabia), loans for massive construction projects that would in due course funnel the money back to US contractors, enriching the ruling elite at the cost of national self-sufficiency, independence and endemic poverty for the vast majority of the local population. By this means, Perkins asserts, the US has turned the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund into tools of Empire. His revelations don’t stop there. Perkins promises that Economics--not Intelligence--is where the real cloak-and-dagger stuff happens.
Award-winning journalist and filmmaker Stelios Kouloglou fashions Perkins’ controversial best-seller into a provocative and fascinating film noir documentary, complete with smoky backroom liaisons, corruption, blackmail and murder. Tearful testimony from the family of Panama’s President Omar Torrijos, who died in a plane “accident” in 1981 after refusing to sell out his country hammers home the point. Kouloglou brings the story bang up to date. Why was $1.4 billion--in cash--transported to Northern Iraq three days before the Iraq Government came to power? How did $9 billion US dollars go missing in the first 18 months of the Iraq Occupation...? This is an infuriating film in the best sense--guaranteed to fuel argument and debate. Festival Programmer

John Perkins was a prominent member of the top-secret team of “economic hit men”, who used fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, military coups and murder to create the global American empire after World War II. After a long internal struggle between his guilt and the fear of telling the truth, Perkins meets the daughter of an assassinated president and speaks out in front of an angry Latin-American audience.
