This is Not Financial Advice, the cryptocurrency centric doc that had its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, has landed at FuseTV.
Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci directed the feature that has a longline that reads: “Glauber Contessoto gambles his life savings on a joke cryptocurrency. Two months later, he becomes ‘The Dogecoin Millionaire’ and an internet legend. While it might seem easy to get rich online, it’s even easier to lose it all.”
The film will be released on Fuse TV on Jan. 11.
Jenna Kelly, Carrie Weprin, and Martine Phelan-Roberts produced the doc, which hails from Optimist, Legion M, XTR, Mr. Wizard Productions, and Bearcat.
Said the directors, “We set out to make a film about the get-rich-quick culture of crypto, but ultimately discovered a much deeper story about our psychological relationship with money. The bare-it-all honesty of Glauber and the rest of the film’s participants resulted in a very fun, but anxiety-inducing film.”
Added Marc Leonard, head of content and marketing at Fuse TV: “Our young, culturally diverse viewers will relate to the pressures felt by Glauber Contessoto, an immigrant working multiple jobs and hustling for his piece of the American Dream by investing in cryptocurrency—and then losing it all.”
The rise and fall of cryptocurrency empires and the fates of investors have been premium non-fiction fodder as of late. There are several doc entries centered on the FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, including projects from Vice Media and The Information, Fortune, and XTR.
