Swiss director Nicolas Wadimoff’s Opération Libertad features in the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight section. In the film, a revolutionary group tries to uncover a 1970s money laundering operation by a South American dictator in a Swiss bank.
The film then jumps 30 years forward when videotapes chronicling the entire operation reappear and reopen the haunting question: does the end justify the means? Wadimoff talks to swissinfo.ch. (Akkafilms.ch/swissinfo.ch)
