About The Film
Demystifying the controversial financier who dares to tackle global problems, this biography illuminates one of the world’s richest philanthropists. Depicted either as a human rights advocate by the left, or bogeyman by the right, George Soros pumps millions into charities while drawing the ire of conservative ideologues. Born in a Jewish-Hungarian family, life under Nazism spurred a lifelong battle against despotism. From free elections to free press, the influential billionaire is undeterred in advocating for open societies. Filmmaker Jesse Dylan follows Soros across the globe, as the inquisitive benefactor enhances his knowledge, while associates describe the history, private wealth, and public activism of the complex, often misunderstood man who embodies tikkun olam.
