“HANK: Five Years From the Brink” Available Now

September 16, 2013

For three weeks in September 2008, U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson was charged with preventing the collapse of the U.S. economy. In HANK: Five Years from the Brink, Paulson tells the complete story of how he persuaded banks, Congress, and presidential candidates to sign off on nearly $1 trillion in bailouts—even though he found the behavior that led to the crisis, and the bailouts themselves, morally reprehensible. Paulson also details here why another fiscal crisis is inevitable.

HANK: Five Years From the Brink launches exclusively on Netflix today, Sept. 16, 2013. Co-produced by Bloomberg Businessweek and RadicalMedia, the film is directed by Academy Award and seven-time Emmy nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger, whose documentaries include the critically acclaimed Brother’s Keeper, the Paradise Lost trilogy, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster and Crude.
