A leak in paradise (teaser) - Coming in 2012

A documentary on tax havens and Swiss whistleblower Rudolf Elmer, a man who broke the Cayman bank secrecy law by publishing sensitive client data from Bank Julius Baer on WikiLeaks. Back in Switzerland he has been stalked by private investigators. He has lost his job three times and has no secure income. Since 19 January 2011 he is retained in custody by the Zurich prosecutor because he gave Julian Assange two CDs allegedly containing the offshore bank account details of "high net worth individuals". The prosecutor thinks there are data from Swiss banks on the CDs, but there is no evidence so far. A blatant attempt to bully Elmer and intimidate other would-be whistleblowers?
A film by David Leloup and Jean-Philippe Rouxel. Coming in 2012.
