Recessionize! For Fun and Profit


Repercussions of the recent economic recession have reverberated across the globe. However, not all of the effects have been entirely negative; many have managed to turn economic crisis into opportunity. From California to Europe to Dubai, the filmmakers embark on a black-comic road trip, meeting a quirky cast of characters who have managed to turn a profit from the market’s collapse. The present-day journey is interwoven with stories of similar financial solutions from the 1930’s Great Depression. A bittersweet tale of the universal ironies of modern market.
