 Montreal,
Thursday,
February

2014
–
The
Montreal
International
Documentary
Festival
(RIDM)
 is
pleased
to
announce
the
second
instalment
of
2014
in
the
monthly
Docville
series:
Master
of
the
 Universe
 by
 Marc
 Bauder.
 Master
 of
 the
 Universe,
 winner
 of
 the
 Critics’
 Week
 Grand
 Prize
 at
 the
 Locarno
 festival,
 features
 an
 investment
 banker’s
 chilling
 revelations
 about
 the
 secretive
 world
 of
 finance.
 The
 film
 will
 have
 its
 Canadian
 premiere
 on
 Thursday,
 February
 27
 at
 8
 p.m.
 at
 Cinéma
 Excentris.

 
 Rainer
Voss
was
one
of
Germany’s
top
investment
bankers.
He
generated
a
million
in
profits
every
 day.
 In
 an
 empty
 office
 tower
 in
 Frankfurt’s
 financial
 district,
 Voss
 tells
 all:
 his
 work,
 motivations,
 family
life,
and
vision
of
the
world’s
financial
future.
Since
its
world
premiere
at
Locarno,
the
film
has
 been
presented
at
CPH:DOX,
IDFA,
Festival
dei
Popoli
(Florence)
and
Ambulante
(Mexico).
It
exposes
 a
cult‐like,
megalomania‐ridden
parallel
world.
