Money & Speed: Inside the Black Box is a thriller based on actual events that takes us to the heart of our automated financial world. Based on interviews with those directly involved and data visualization into the millisecond, it reconstructs the fastest and deepest decline of the U.S. stock market ever.
On the 6th of May 2010, the American stock markets plunged by almost 10% in only 20 minutes.
By reconstructing this mysterious "flash crash", Money and Speed uncovers a world of computer driven financial markets in which profit or loss are determined at the speed of light. Mind-blowing visualizations of financial data show what goes on in the black boxes of the world of finance. What are the consequences of putting computers in charge of our financial system?
A multi-layered documentary, in which strong storytelling and meticulous visual analysis meet. This TouchDoc shows what a merging of the television- and computer screens can bring.
With leading "quant" Paul Wilmott, historian George Dyson, quantitative hedge fund manager Rishi Narang, Gregg Berman, the SEC's lead flash crash investigator Gregg Berman, data analist Eric Scott Hunsader, New Jersey property consultant Jeff Hipschman and former financial regulator Bill Black.
