Museum of Money, Baixa Pombalina
Saturday 5 January 2019
More cinema sessions that explore the meanderings of the economic and financial worlds, with banking and markets at the centre of the action, both in America and in Europe, showing different perspectives and contexts, in documentary and fiction. Cycle Where Does The Money Come From? – There’s Cinema in the Museum. And for this week, another film, like the others interpreting “independently and based on facts, the systemic impact of the decisions of financial institutions on the lives of ordinary citizens.” Capital, which Costa-Gavras directed in 2012 with Gad Elmaleh, Gabriel Byrne and Liya Kebede, is a plot that observes the interstices of the banking world through the rise of an unscrupulous businessman to the direction of one of the most important European banks.
