Tribeca Film Festival: A Unique Perspective on the Madoff Meltdown

In early 2009, a journalist introduced the filmmakers Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek to Eleanor Squillari. The Bernard L. Madoff financial scandal was dominating the news — Mr. Madoff had been arrested in December 2008 — and as the disgraced financier’s former secretary, Ms. Squillari was a hot property among reporters and others hoping to untangle the crime. “She was a fly on the wall in one of the most interesting rooms in financial history,” Mr. Kubicek said. Fortunately for the filmmakers, the meeting went well enough to convince Ms. Squillari to join them on a documentary about the fraud. The film, “In God We Trust,” had its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last Friday and will screen again on Thursday. More in the New York Times here.
