OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT FOR "SHADOW WORLD"
SHADOW WORLD is a cinematic documentary that reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade - the only business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives. Directed by artist/filmmaker Johan Grimonprez (dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y), the film is in part based on the acclaimed book "The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade," by Corruption Watch-UK founder Andrew Feinstein. Through the insights of whistleblowers, investigators, prosecutors, military and industry insiders SHADOW WORLD reveals how the international trade in weapons – with the complicity of governments, their militaries and intelligence agencies, defense contractors, arms dealers and agents – fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracies and creates widespread suffering. The film unravels a number of the world’s largest and most corrupt arms deals through those involved in perpetrating and investigating them. It illustrates why this trade accounts for almost 40% of all corruption in global trade, and how it operates in a parallel legal universe, in which the national security elite who drive it are seldom prosecuted for their often illegal actions. SHADOW WORLD posits alternatives through the experience of a peace activist and war correspondent, as well as through the voice of Eduardo Galeano who contributed selections from his stories for the film. Ultimately SHADOW WORLD reveals the real costs of war, the way the arms trade drives it, how weapons of war are turned against citizens of liberal democracies and how the trade inhibits rather than enhances security for us all. In shedding light on how our realities are being constructed, the film offers a way for audiences to see through this horror, in the hopes of creating a better future.
In working out the story with Andrew, I came to realize that corruption is not a dirty little side effect of the arms trade, but in fact its defining factor. Even more crucial is how it is entangled in driving foreign policy, and how it actually sets the stage for war. In reality SHADOW WORLD is not about some small time illegal arms dealers, but about big corporations involving players at the highest levels of government. The defense industry is supposed to bolster security, but instead gives us exactly the opposite: a more dangerous world. Politicians who are supposed to represent our hopes and dreams, sell us fear and nightmares in the name of those very corporations who lobby for war. The business of war manipulates the media to cultivate an industry of fear, which in turn has created a reality defined by violence. My approach to the storytelling involves a media archaeology, examining how the media affects us, while examining myths about human nature celebrating greed and self-interest. I believe as humans we can choose to embrace a different paradigm—one that is based on cooperation, conflict transformation and dialogue. As Howard Zinn once said, “The fact that war belongs to the past, does not mean it has to be part of the future.”
STATEMENT BY ANDREW FEINSTEIN
Author of "The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade" upon which the film is predicated.
Shadow World reveals the arms trade to be the most extreme and unaccountable intertwining of business and politics, in which money, power and personal ambition are placed before national security and global peace, human rights and development. I grew up in South Africa, privileged by my white skin but aware that the aspirations of the majority were represented by Nelson Mandela and his ANC, which I became involved with in my early twenties. I worked as a facilitator in the constitutional negotiations that led to our first democratic elections in 1994, in which I was elected as a Member of Parliament. Working for Mandela was a privilege and an honor. Sadly, driven by his successor, the ANC decided to spend $10bn on weapons that we didn’t need and barely use. $300m of bribes were paid, including to senior ANC and government leaders and officials. I tried to investigate the deal in my role as the ANC’s ranking member of the main financial oversight committee. The party demanded that I halt the investigation, forcing me to choose between my party and the oath I had taken to uphold the constitution. I chose to try and continue the investigation in the national interest, and was forced out of Parliament. Thereafter, I wrote about the South African deal and its devastating consequences and founded Corruption Watch-UK as a home for the investigative and research work that I had started. This work culminated in the writing of “The Shadow World” : the first narrative account of the global arms trade in over thirty years, and described by the Washington Post as ‘the most complete account of the trade ever written.’ I was delighted as the reality of the egregious impact of the arms trade was published in a number of languages and numerous countries, but wanted to take this story to everlarger audiences. Joslyn Barnes and Dilly Hossain made clear to me the potential of documentary film in drawing attention to this crucial issue to which I have devoted my life and putting it on the public agenda. Shadow World represents an unprecedented opportunity to do just that. Shadow World reveals the reality of the global arms trade, a subject I’ve been investigating for over 15 years. The film lays bare the grotesque corruption perpetrated by politicians, defense company executives, military leaders and government officials; the pernicious role of middlemen and arms dealers; the insidious undermining of the rule of law and democracy in both buying and selling countries; the way in which this under-regulated trade often results in inappropriate or inadequate military equipment, sometimes undermining the very security that weapons deals are intended to bolster; and, crucially, how the small but extremely powerful political and economic elite that controls this trade ensures that war is favored over diplomacy and sustainable security for all. Of grave importance is that this elite seldom, if ever, faces the consequences of their egregious and often illegal actions. 6

Belgian artist and filmmaker Johan Grimonprez achieved international acclaim with his documentary film "dial H-I-S-T-OR-Y" (1997), a collaboration with author Don DeLillo that tells the story of air hijackings since the 1970s and how these changed news reporting. With its premiere at Centre Pompidou and Documenta X in Kassel in 1997, the film eerily foreshadowed the events of September 11th and analyzed compellingly how the media participates in the construction of our perceived reality. In 2009, Grimonprez made "Double Take," which targets the global rise of ‘fear-as-commodity’. It premiered at Sundance and Berlin, and traveled the international film festival circuit, winning several Best Director awards, the Black Pearl Award in Abu Dhabi and the New Media Grand Prize in LA. His film and curatorial projects have been exhibited at museums worldwide, including the Hammer Museum (LA), Pinakothek der Moderne (Munich) and MoMA (NY). His works are part of the permanent collections of numerous major museums, including the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), the Kanazawa Art Museum (Japan) and Tate Modern (London). In 2011, Hatje Cantz Verlag published a reader on his work entitled “It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards” with contributions by Jodi Dean, Thomas Elsaesser, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Slavoj Žižek. Grimonprez divides his time between Brussels and New York, where he now lectures at the School of Visual Arts. In 2012, Cinema Scope named him one of the “Best 50 Filmmakers Under 50” in the world.

NICOLE MACKINLAY HAHN Cinematographer
Nicole Mackinlay Hahn is an artist and filmmaker based in New York. She began her film career by borrowing her little brother’s pixel vision camera in the eighth grade to film friends during school. Nicole’s naturalistic approach across diverse communities around the world have established her as a premiere director of films for the art, design, fashion, sports, and entertainment fields. She shot MIRROR/AFRICA in twelve African countries for her interactive installation project concerning workers in the garment industry. The installation was featured in Barney’s New York, the New Museum, and the London College of Fashion. This led to THE WELCOME TABLE PROJECT a series of short film portraits which maps the labor chain of workers in the US food industry commissioned by Louverture Films and Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC), and which was featured at the Tribeca Film Festival/Interactive. For the last few years, Nicole has been directing, filming, and editing exclusive short films with U2. Recently her short film, BURKINA, PRINCESS YENNENGA featuring a series of intimate portraits of a group of Burkinabé women, made its worldwide premiere at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

PER K. KIRKEGAARD Editor
KARSTEN FUNDAL Original Music
Per is one of the most established editors in Europe. He has edited numerous critically acclaimed documentaries and narrative features, and his latest credits include films like “Armadillo” - for which he received an Emmy Award for best editing of a long format documentary - and “TPBAFK: The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard,” which premiered at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival. Per is renowned for his musically attuned editing style, his great precision as a storyteller, his loyalty to the projects he is engaged in, and his unique eye for the poetic yet specific. He is currently editing James Longley’s “Angels Are Made of Light”. For Karsten Fundal, no single style of music is preferable to another; he is interested in the fundamental concept of music which can result in almost anything in stylistic terms. The crucial point for him is for the composer to remain true to his ideas. Fundal was born in 1966 in Valby, Denmark, and studied composition with Hans Abrahamsen, Ib Nørholm, Per Nørgård and Karl Aage Rasmussen. He went on to study for two years in Holland with Louis Andriessen. A meeting with Nigel Osborne and most significantly with Morton Feldman at Dartington in 1986 had a great impact on Fundal’s compositional development. His main works include mostly chamber music and orchestra pieces, among them the breakthrough “Ballad” (1988) and the classicist piano concerto “Liquid Motion” (1993). Among larger works are the concert for percussion, “Ritornelli in contrario” (1997), the grand orchestral pieces “Hush” (2003-2004) and “Entropia” (19972001) – the latter a portrayal of the creation of the universe – and the orchestral installation “Liquid Rooms” (2013). Besides his works for the concert hall, Fundal has written and arranged music for several Danish and international movies, for instance “Flame and Citron,” and he has collaborated with leading Danish pop artists. He received the Wilhelm Hansen Composer Award in 1994 and the Prize of the Danish Composers’ Society in 1995.

CORRUPTION WATCH UK ANDREW FEINSTEIN Andrew Feinstein is a South African writer and campaigner based in the UK. He was a facilitator in the constitutional negotiations process that led to the first democratic elections in South Africa in 1994, when he was elected an ANC Member of Parliament. He served as an MP for more than seven years – on Parliament’s Finance committee, serving as Deputy Chair of the country’s Audit Commission and as the ranking ANC member on the key financial oversight body, the Public Accounts Committee. He resigned in protest when the Public Accounts Committee was prohibited from investigating a massive arms deal involving several European companies that was tainted by allegations of high-level corruption. Feinstein subsequently worked as a senior manager with the South African investment bank, Investec, in London, while writing his first book "After the Party: A Personal and Political Journey Inside the ANC." The book was a bestseller in South Africa before being published internationally in early 2009. Feinstein left Investec when the book was published in order to carry on writing and campaigning. His critically acclaimed book "The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade," was first published by Penguin and Farrar, Straus & Giroux in late 2011. It has already been published in seven different editions around the world, with more forthcoming, including a Chinese translation. A full-length documentary film is currently being made based on the book. Andrew co-authored, along with Paul Holden and Barnaby Pace, the lead article in the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s (SIPRI) 2011 Yearbook, and he and Paul Holden co-authored a chapter in the forthcoming "Oxford Handbook of Organised Crime" He appears regularly in a range of print and broadcast media. These include, most often, the BBC, Al Jazeera, CNN, Sky, NPR, Democracy Now, the Guardian, the New York Times, the Mail & Guardian and Die Zeit. An Open Society International Fellow while writing "The Shadow World" and developing an arms trade manual, Andrew also chairs the Friends of the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), an HIV and AIDS charity, registered in the UK since 2001.
OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT
CORRUPTION WATCH UK PAUL HOLDEN Paul Holden is a South African-born and London-based historian, researcher, writer and activist. He has published four books to date on issues related to corruption, governance and democratic practice in South Africa. Two of his books – “The Arms Deal in Your Pocket” (2008) and “Who Rules South Africa” (2012) – were major national best-sellers. His major investigative work to date was the book “The Devil in the Detail: How the Arms Deal Changed Everything” (2011), which collated the result of years of detailed investigation into South Africa’s biggest post-apartheid scandal. “The Devil in the Detail” was published to wide acclaim, with local and international media running lengthy stories based on the new material uncovered. Since 2009, Paul has worked closely with Andrew Feinstein, acting as the lead researcher for Feinstein’s “The Shadow World” and as co-author, along with fellow colleague Barnaby Pace, of the lead article in the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s (SIPRI) 2011 Yearbook. The article – discussing the nature of corruption in the global armaments trade – is the first time that SIPRI has dedicated a lead article to this pressing topic. Paul and Andrew Feinstein have also recently authored an explanatory article on the nature of arms trafficking for the Oxford Handbook for Organised Crime, due to be published soon. Paul has appeared regularly on South African and international news platforms discussing issues related to corruption and its impact on development and democratisation in developing countries.
