In this video directed by documentary filmmaker Isabelle Sylvestre, member of European Parliament Ana Gomes discusses how to fight Corruption in the EU with Charles Carr, an anti-corruption consultant. Charles Carr is Executive Managing Director at K2 Intelligence and Regional Head EMEA, based in London.
To stop corruption, prison is of course the ultimate deterrent. But exposing corruption may have just as much effect. As the following link shows (example Pana Committee Inquiry about the Panama Papers Scandal), the humiliation of being unmasked in the face of democracy is not to be underestimated.
Isabelle Sylvestre is currently making a film about corruption in the EU. In it she follows a number of Members of the European Parliament who made the fight against corruption the focus of their activities.
Isabelle Sylvestre is just the type of director to catch and reveal these painful moments and yield maximum effect while not losing sight of the situation’s sensitivity. She is a Filmmaker and Sociologist and has made many “investigating” documentaries, including a few for the Belgian cult show ‘Strip-Tease’. Her web-doc ‘Troubled Waters’ on waste in the sea received the PRIMED 2016.
Today she investigates corruption in the EU and invites you to support her efforts. Help crowdfund her new documentary epic, THE MEPs, THE LOBBYISTS AND THE MOBSTERS, in which she follows several courageous MEPs in their quest to expose corruption in the EU and those who take part in it.
