Presentation by and discussion with French actor Arthur Dupont & set assistant Brizit Pesquet
2008. The economic world is affected by the biggest crisis since 1929. And one man, a young trader, is held responsible for one of the first and most extravagant scandals of a series that follows and that will upset the international financial market: Jérôme Kerviel. Indeed, the biggest financial loss of this kind, in history, (about 5 billion euros!) is unveiled at the French bank Société Générale, and very quickly attributed to this young and discreet 31-year-old employee. . .
Hired as a simple office worker at the same bank, eight years earlier, no one could have predicted that Jerôme Kerviel would go so far, so fast. He became the star of the trading room, nicknamed the “cash machine” by his colleagues. But how could he have played, and risked, supposedly alone (and secretly), 5 billion euros?
