talking money deals with encounters at a particular location: a desk, ruled by power and powerlessness, that transforms us as soon as we sit down.

can the language of money be captured? documentary film is capable of discovering new narrative spaces that were inaccessible until now. the intimate conversations about money at the bank sketch a spectrum of social images that revolve around questions of participation and exclusion, trust and control. surprisingly, both sides accept the rules of the system as a given. as customers, we seem to be in the same boat all across the world. none of us can presume to step outside the lines.
