Abstract:

With a net worth of over $60,000,000,000, Warren Buffett is truly a one-of-a-kind billionaire. Now 86 years old, the legendary investor still lives in a modest home in Omaha, and continues to drive himself to the office every morning to manage Berkshire Hathaway, the fifth largest public company in the world. But more surprising than his humble lifestyle and self-effacing personality is Buffett's exemplary moral core. The same principles of decency and integrity that helped him pile up a fortune led him to give much of it away in the largest philanthropic donation in history. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Peter Kunhardt and produced by Kunhardt Films, Becoming Warren Buffett chronicles the evolution of an ambitious, numbers-obsessed boy from Nebraska into one of the richest, most respected men in the world, and the heroes who helped guide him along the way. Allowing the filmmakers to record intimate details of his day-to-day personal life (including trips to a local high school and stops at drive-through restaurants before work), as well as access to never-before-released home movies and family photographs, Buffett is seen in this candid portrait as a man possessed of a truly unique, generous and fertile mind - someone who can help us all understand what is truly important when money no longer has meaning.
