Hege Dehli: Hunting Corruption (English)

(En castellano más arriba) 
Thanks to the initiative El documental del mes, those living in different points in Spain will be able to watch the documentary Hunting Corruption in lots of venues this month. Some of us watched it at the Docs Barcelona Festival last week. Don't miss it! Here is the trailer.

The French-Norwegian magistrate Eva Joly created The Network in 2005. It is a group of 20 high-profile judges and prosecutors who work on important white collar corruption cases. Since then, they have been meeting twice a year to share their experience and support each other. 




Their meetings are revealed for the first time and the camera shows their restlessness, frustration, courage and fear in close-up, in the United Kingdom, Nigeria, Iceland, Italy and Costa Rica, in a very dynamic way and beautifully filmed.
Film director Hege Dehli had to wait for a year before the Network accepted to participate in her project and she carried it out with funding of the Norwegian government and ARTE. 
Hege Dehli had previously documented Eva Joly's career as a green party candidate to preside the French Republic who became well-known for running the case against the French oil company Elf, which The Guardian called "the biggest fraud inquiry in Europe since the Second World War". Eva Joly now chairs the European Parliament Development Committee.
