A Case Study of White Collar Crime & Ethical Decision Making

About the film
To this day, Joseph Grmovsek remains the only Canadian to ever be criminally convicted and serve a federal prison sentence for insider trading. Grmovsek met his partner in crime during their first week of law school in Canada in 1990. Post-graduation, his partner developed a prestigious law career in New York—all the while feeding inside information back to Grmovsek in Canada. Lasting 15 years, over a hundred separate deals, and involving millions of dollars in transactions, theirs is believed to be the most prolonged insider trading scheme ever discovered by authorities on either side of the Canada-US border. Through intimate insights shared by the now-reformed Grmovsek and interviews with leading scholars, former prosecutors and forensic psychologists, Collared gives unparalleled insight into the world of white-collar crime while revealing the grave and often unforeseen consequences that can flow from professional misconduct and ethical breaches.

Following the screening, Joseph Grmovsek will be in conversation with Garrick Apollon to discuss the prevention of white-collar crime and how ethical decision making impacts business and personal lives.
