Rainer Voss was one of Germany’s top investment bankers. He made a million euros in profit every day. In an empty office tower in Frankfurt’s financial district, Voss tells all: his work, motivations, family life, and vision for the world’s financial future. Master of the Universe is a chilling confession that exposes a parallel world driven by megalomania and quasi-religious fervor. Where other films on the financial meltdown have focused on the epic nature of larger-than-life business, director Marc Bauder probes the mentality that made it possible in the first place. A tense drama where psychology meets finance – two things that are more closely linked than you would like to believe.
Marc Bauder was born in Stuttgart in 1974, and studied business administration and film. He is a documentary director and producer. In 1999, he founded his film production company Bauderfilm.
