ABOUT THE FILM

Hervé Falciani is said to be the Edward Snowden of the banking system – the man responsible for the biggest bank data theft in the history of HSBC bank. The leaked information, known as “Swiss Leaks”, revealed massive tax fraud strategies costing tax-payers billions of Euros, and finally triggered off a heated debate between financial experts and political leaders about the legitimacy of tax havens. Falciani is currently on the run from the Swiss authorities. Ben Lewis’s film follows the whistleblower to learn more about his motivations, and explores in detail the fallout from his actions.
