Bill Ackman & Herbalife - World Premiere Of Betting On Zero

Bill Ackman’s crusade to expose Herbalife

Controversial hedge fund titan Bill Ackman is on a crusade to expose global nutritional giant Herbalife as the largest pyramid scheme in history, arguing the company targets working class Latino communities with a “business opportunity” that is nothing more than a scheme to recruit more sellers, not actual buyers.

Meanwhile, Herbalife execs defend their product as a genuine opportunity, one that offers a path to both health and wealth.  They accuse Ackman of being an unadorned market manipulator out to bankrupt them in order to make a killing off his billion dollar short position against the company.  Amidst rhetoric of the “greater good” on both sides, who has the moral standing with so much financial incentive clouding the waters?

Ted Braun’s (DARFUR NOW) documentary presents a high-stakes chess game between the corporation and the individual that moves between the ethically fluid world of high finance and boots on the ground lives where the  battle plays out with startling immediacy.  Probing themes of fraud, greed, and the cost of profit, BETTING ON ZERO is an engrossing deep dive into the moral complexities raised when astronomical sums of money- and no less than the American Dream itself- are on the line.

Controversial hedge fund titan Bill Ackman is on a crusade to expose global nutritional giant Herbalife as the largest pyramid scheme in history while Herbalife execs claim Ackman is a market manipulator out to bankrupt them and make a killing off his billion dollar short.
