‘Some boys read the comic books, I read the commodities books’ - Nobu Su
Nobu Su is known as a visionary, legend and game-changer within the international goods trade. Yet in 2008’s financial crisis, Su lost almost everything. He believes that RBS stole billions of dollars from his accounts in what he claims is the ‘biggest banking scandal you’ve never heard of’. This new documentary follows Su’s prodigious rise and dramatic fall. But is he a bitter conspiracy theorist or a wronged man?
The Outsider follows the early unravelling of Su’s legal battle and traces the life story of this self-made business man, to find out how one person can rise so high in one of the world’s most profitable industries. The Wolf of Wall Street for the shipping industry, The Outsider is a slick documentary that gains unique access to the early moments of a banking scandal and the daily life of one of the world’s most inventive businessmen.
