Bloody Money

Institute History


Bloody Money, currently in production, is a financial thriller that follows an extraordinary story from Kiev to London to Washington, D.C. It reveals uncomfortable truths about the global financial systems currently in place that actively enable and encourage corruption. The film links to the work of Global Witness, the organization co-founded by Gooch, to expose how anonymous shell companies and Western banks are used to enable corrupt governments to rob their nation’s wealth. Global Witness is a non-profit organization that, for 20 years, has run pioneering investigations and campaigns uncovering the links between natural resources, corruption and conflict. Gooch received the $1 million TED Prize in 2014, and Marking’s intention is to illuminate the extent and malign effects of anonymous companies.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications.

For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
