Abstract:

In this stirring picture of the American Dream gone wrong, BETTING ON ZERO follows controversial hedge fund titan Bill Ackman as he puts a billion dollars on the line in his crusade to expose Herbalife as the largest pyramid scheme in history. The battle between Ackman and Herbalife plays out in the media, in board rooms, and on the streets gone wrong. Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival. "[BETTING ON ZERO] adds up to a timely, provocative and absorbing tale of money, power and a search for the truth."--Gary Goldstein, The Los Angeles Times. "The situation is heartbreaking and frustrating. But the film is so persuasive that it could help finally tank Herbalife's shares and validate Ackman's gamble - possibly preventing thousands of others." - Daphne Howland, Village Voice.
