We are delighted to present a free screening of Michael Oswald's documentary film on Britain's role in creating the global network of tax havens:
The Spider's Web : Britain's Second Empire.
At the demise of empire, City of London financial interests created a web of off-shore secrecy jurisdictions that harnessed wealth from across the globe and hid it behind obscure financial structures in far flung places. Today, up to half of global off-shore wealth may be hidden in British offshore jurisdictions and this 'Second Empire' constitutes the largest global player in the world of international finance. How did this come about, and what impact does it have in today's world ? This is what The Spider's Web sets out to investigate.
Following the screening, the Director, Michael Oswald, will take a Q&A session dealing with the research and development of the documentary and its subsequent reception on release.
Please join us for what promises to be an enjoyable and thought-provoking exploration of a subject at the heart of current discussion of global capitalism.
- Mike and Tim.
