As the first independent filmmaker in 50 years to be granted behind-the-scenes access to the World Economic Forum, filmmaker Marcus Vetter achieved quite a feat before he even set the camera rolling.
“The Forum” is a fascinating and admirably balanced deep dive into the organization that brings together the elite from the worlds of politics, big business, and more than justifies its near two-hour running time.
Shot across two years and featuring footage from the meetings at Davos in Switzerland in 2018 and 2019, the film touches on a raft of global issues, from Brazilian deforestation and Brexit to the rise of populism and corporate tax avoidance.
“The Forum” recently screened at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA).
