A political thriller revealing the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalism that broke the story of the offshore tax haven in Panama, revealing the widespread tax evasion committed by global leaders and celebrities.

Explore the courageous journalism that won a Pulitzer Prize for investigating offshore tax havens with thrilling political doc The Panama Papers.  With many twists and turns, this film follows the international collaboration of journalists that uncovered vast sums of hidden money.

As a wave of world leaders are forced to resign, David Cameron’s own tax evasion gets buried under the attention given to Brexit. Meanwhile, the effects of austerity and the wealthy avoiding tax proves devastating to the 99% of people on lesser incomes.

The Panama Papers is an absorbing and shocking portrait of fearless journalism as anti-corruption activism – with the murder of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana hugely emphasising the level of personal risk at stake.
