Effortless French: Bitcoin Big Bang (Screening & Director Q&A)

4th June 2018

Price: £12.00

Concession: £10

When 850 000 bitcoins (half a billion dollars) disappear from Mt. Gox in Tokyo, it's unconventional CEO, Mark Karpelès, is arrested. After a year, he's finally released for lack of evidence. Mark Karpelès is now free and breaks his silence.

Launched as a bitcoin exchange in 2010, Mt. Gox quickly became the world's most popular Cryptocurrency trading platform. But by February 2014, the site pulled the plug and filed for bankruptcy. Mt. Gox blamed its huge losses on hackers who had stolen over 8 billion dollars worth of bitcoin, taking advantage of a major security flaw. At the time, Karpelès became the most hated person in the bitcoin world for letting it happen right under his nose, he currently remains held in Japan on trial for embezzlement. 

Join us for an exclusive one-off screening of the newly released feature documentary followed by a Q&A session with the French directors, Vincent Gonon & Xavier Sayanoff, who'll be sharing their experiences in gaining exclusive access to such an extraordinary individual.

This event is organised in association with the Rebel Film Festival: www.rebelfilmfestival.com
