To The Top And Back / Do vrha in nazaj (2015)

50 min / documentary, medium- length

There were times when the economy was thriving and all indicators were turned upwards. But then finances crashed and reality hit in – the economy had been on steroids. While professionals argue whether the financial crisis runs in the form of V or in the form W or has become a line segment at the bottom of the graph, we are wondering: "How could this have happened?!" Some answers can be found in To The Top And Back. Featuring Albin Kordež, a financier, a former president of the board, manager of the year, a member of the Bank of Slovenia governing board, the mastermind of management buyout, a "tycoon", a convict residing in the semi-open unit of the Dob Prison.
