In 2015, an explosive collection of 11.5 million documents was leaked to journalists revealing vast and coordinated corruption among the world's elite. This exposure of secretive offshore companies for widespread tax evasion and money laundering incriminated world leaders, political and public officials, celebrities and major public figures in everything from fraud to government bribes to election meddling to murder. In this galvanizing doc, director Alex Winter shares the stories of the journalists who worked secretly to ensure the story's release, the immediate and unsettling backlash from those exposed, and the ongoing consequences that strike at the heart of the biggest themes of our times.

Q&A with director Alex Winter (Skype on March 6, in-person on March 7), hosted by award-winning author and journalist Rachel Giese.
