Robin Bank

24th TDF: World Premiere

Robin Bank is the story of a Catalan activist who between 2005 and 2008 took out loans of half a million euros which he never repaid. Instead, he used the money to fund social projects. After having been incarcerated for two months, he was released on bail, and while he was awaiting trial, he escaped the country, declaring himself a fugitive from the law. He stated that he committed the robbery as an act of civil disobedience to reveal the bad practices of the banking system and also, to encourage people to think differently and join him in his effort to create another, more equal and sustainable world. But is there still room in the 21st century for this quixotic idea of a single person trying to redeem an entire planet? A hybrid documentary that moves between the idealistic dreams of this activist and the reality.
