North America correspondent in Argentina, Joe Goldman, stars in the documentary Eagles, the wild face of capitalism, Which, under the direction of Mariano Moshe, is conducting an investigation denouncing the actions of opportunistic funds in the issue of renegotiating the Argentine foreign debt and that it will appear on Thursday at eight in the evening on Cine.ar TV, where it will also be possible to watch Saturday at the same time and this Friday. It will be available for a week and for free on Incaa’s platform, Cine.ar Play.
In 72 minutes, the film dares to chronicle the country’s economic disaster, its foreign debt, the decision to default after the December 2001 crisis, and the Nestor Kirchner government’s plan to recover foreign debt securities and thus end the association with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The work of the film focuses on this economic and political decision, as Goldman focuses on the actions of opportunistic funds and more specifically on Paul Singer and his NML Securities in the context of the trial against the nation state in the New York courts.
To unravel this scenario, ABC News Network reporter provides an overview of the matter, adding voices to current Economy Minister Martin Guzman (who was then a member of economist Joseph Stiglitz’s team, who described it as “the most remarkable person talking about the Argentine debt situation”) and Buenos Aires Governor Axel Kisilov, who was in charge of the economic portfolio and spoke with Goldman in New York after defending Argentina’s position at the United Nations in September 2014.
Participants include economics journalist Alfredo Ziat, mathematician and communicator Adrian Bienza, Argentine economist Claudio Loser who worked for 30 years at the International Monetary Fund, North American journalist and researcher Greg Palast, and former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa. .
But a big catalyst for the plot is some conversations Goldman is giving to North American tourists who come to Argentina and want to know the economic fluctuations common among the indigenous population, but which cannot be explained from the outside.
“I’ve known Joe for years and he’s been telling me about the investigation, but when I recently photographed American travelers arriving in Buenos Aires on cruise ships, it seemed to me that there was a movie there,” he admitted Blameless Mariano Mocci, director of the film.
About experience Eagles, the wild face of capitalismThe director, who is currently the audiovisual coordinator for the National Library, emphasized: “It is a wonderful, separate and authentic look that took us about five years of work because the presidential inauguration for Macri took everything a political turn.”
For its part, Goldman commented on Telam: “These shows to tourists are something that three international journalists have done for a company for nearly 20 years trying to explain the inexplicable to them.”
The journalist said that North Americans are used to calmer and more natural economic processes, but doing this review helps them understand why they visit such an unequal region.
Able to build a bridge between this teaching and his personal and professional experience, Goldman noted: “With this film, we covered a lot of our lives since I got things from the United States and this region after I covered topics for many years. The economic issues were in Ecuador, Peru, Brazil and Argentina. Which always seemed to me to be very important issues for Latin America. “
“My view is based on what happened in the United States with the liberalization of the economy that created an opportunity for unscrupulous people to act freely like they could not do years ago. Even in Great Britain, vulture funds are outlawed. That is why I wonder and the movie asks whether the actions of Eagle Funds are not immoral,” Goldman admitted, while Mochi added, “Seeing the movie and his point of view is Joe’s movie, but for me it was a coaching. And I feel so the Eagles … It should be mandatory and seen in schools because it has to be known that this money cannot continue to operate with impunity. “
When asked about the moment when they felt that the investigative report they were conducting could be turned into a movie, Goldman specified: “When I found out that my best friend of my youth had worked for 25 years at Thomas Grisa court as a secretary and provided information as the situation evolved. From the very first moment, it was clear. Gerasa does not see the difference between what could be the bonds of any company or the bonds of a sovereign state.
The film introduces Grisa as part of a political framework rather than a judicial one due to her ties to the Republican Party. “There are 28 judges in that federal court handling matters of the financial world, and Wall Street and Argentina lost in this lottery, and it was unfortunate that there was an instinct,” said the journalist who fully agreed with what the governments did. And Christina Fernandez de Kirchner. “On the issue of external debt, fighting vultures and trying to redistribute wealth, I fully support what those governments did. Although I can also provide a list of issues with which I disagree with these efforts.”
The movie repeats the phrase: “Argentina is a crazy and brutal country,” but when asked if this is the vision it has of the country, Goldman replied, “With Donald Trump, the United States has overcome any potential Argentine brutality. But I use this phrase with tourists from A very special, well-known character of the American comedian, Steve Martin. I don’t think Argentina is unruly, but it is very funny. “
