Equity - in der Filmreihe: Wall Street and the American Economy
"I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love" (The Beatles). Wall Street is a symbol and myth for big money, success and political power. At the same time it constitutes a trust and failure system in the lives of millions of Americans who trusted Wall Street managers and lost life savings. This semester's film series explores power structures and ideologies of class, race, and gender as fostered by the economic system as well as the topic of financial and social crisis as a whole.

Equity (2016, Regie: Meera Menon), FSK keine Angabe, 100 Min., OV (Carmen Dexl, M.A.)
This brand new financial thriller, directed by Meera Menon, adds women’s voices and perspectives to a traditionally male dominated genre. Naomi Bishop, played by Anna Gunn, is an ambitious senior investment banker who loves money. On her way to success Naomi is faced with not only arrogant clients, but also the disloyalties of her colleagues, which threatens to ruin everything she has worked for. Focusing on how Naomi handles corruption and seeks to avoid a financial scandal, the film stresses the complications women face in what is conventionally known as ‘boys’ club professions’.
