The China Hustle, directed by Jed Rothstein, is a mind-blowing documentary about an ongoing Chinese stock scam that Wall Street doesn't want you to know about.
The film, which premiered at last year's Toronto Film Festival, tells the story of a complex scandal involving a multi-billion dollar heist rooted in lies stemming back to the recession from large corporations and how activist short sellers are working to keep the market honest.
I sat down with Rothstein on Circa's Facebook Live to talk about his film and what he hopes audiences will take away from it.
Rothstein's film focuses on the hundreds of Chinese companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges that are inflating their financial numbers for monetary gain.
The China Hustle hits theaters March 30. Watch the trailer below.
