OUR FRIENDS AT THE BANK

UGANDA/USA  •  84′

a film by PETER CHAPPELL

The future of many developing countries is largely dependent on an institution which is already fifty years old, the World Bank. Criticized and questioned as to its utility, and confronted with numerous setbacks, the Bank is going through a perplexing time in regard to deciding what new strategies to adopt, especially in Africa. For fourteen months, Peter Chappell followed negotiations between the World Bank and Uganda in order to understand and describe the obscure and abstract mechanisms that shape the reality of North-South relations, as well as the future of millions of people.
