Director Alexander Nanau follows a crack team of investigators at the Romanian newspaper Gazeta Sporturilor as they try to uncover a vast health-care fraud that enriched moguls and politicians and led to the deaths of innocent citizens.
In 2015, a fire at Bucharest's Colectiv club leaves 27 dead and 180 injured. Soon, more burn victims begin dying in hospitals from wounds that were not life-threatening. Then a doctor blows the whistle to a team of investigative journalists. One revelation leads to another as the journalists start to uncover vast health care fraud. When a new health minister is appointed, he offers unprecedented access to his efforts to reform the corrupt system but also to the obstacles he faces. Following journalists, whistle-blowers, burn victims, and government officials, Collective is an uncompromising look at the impact of investigative journalism at its best.Written by
... and be overwhelmed by a machination of maggots. A jaw dropping, eye opening and almost unbelievable documentary focusing on the endemic and systemic corruption discovered by journalists after sixty four people died as a result of a nightclub fire in Bucharest 2015. Plumbing the depths of depravity, and continuing to reach deeper as each minute ticks by, you will feel for the people of Romania and the betrayal perpetrated against them by their elected officials and civil servants.
