“Logline” from the extensive press kit for this new documentary film:
The investigative documentary Faliciani‘s Tax Bomb follows the tracks of the obscure whistleblower Hervé Falciani who — being responsible for the so-called Swiss Leaks — caused the biggest bank data theft in the history of HSBC Bank. His delicate information hit the international finance sector like a bomb and uncovered massive tax fraud strategies exceeding billions of Euros, finally triggering off a heated debate between financial experts and political leaders about the legitimacy of tax havens. Hervé Falciani is said to be the Edward Snowden of the banking system. He is currently on the run from being arrested by the Swiss authorities.
