Toronto, Sep 8 (Canadian-Media): North American premiere TIFF Doc, 'Collective' directed by Alexander Nanau, reveals the the agony of the society at the cost of greed and boundless self-interest, TIFF reports said.
The story is about a fire at the Bucharest club Colectiv which leaves 27 dead and 180 injured. When more victims with non-life-threatening wounds begin to die, a doctor informs a team of investigative journalists, who succeed to uncover a vast health care fraud.
The story reveals a new health minister's efforts to reform the corrupt system but also to the obstacles he faces and shows 'Collective' as an uncompromising look at the impact of investigative journalism at its best and how Nanau follows an unfolding investigation in real time.
